Mr. Adesina Ogunlana, a lawyer for the Lekki toll gate shooting victims has insisted that the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu must appear before the judicial panel that is investigating the happenings on the night.
The military when they appeared before the panel admitted that they were invited by governor, Sanwo-Olu to come to the Lekki toll gate to restore calm.
This was in sharp contrast with what the governor had earlier told media men. In an interview with Journalist, Babajide Sanwo-Olu denied the presence of military men at the Lekki toll gate after they were accused of beign responsible for the shooting incident.
The lawyer for the victims of the protest in an interview with the Punch, expressed his desire to have the governor appear before the panel to answer questions.
He told the Punch: “Of course, that is taken. That person (Sanwo-Olu) will have to come; he’s a factor and he will come. He says he believes in the rule of law, his Attorney General, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), has come to appear before that panel to just make a short speech and to affirm that the Lagos State Government is indeed committed to unraveling the truth about what happened at Lekki on that day; and the military has mentioned him, so, he is a factor.”
