Lekki Concession Company(LCC), operators of the Lekki toll gate, has submitted video footage recorded by its surveillance camera on the night of October 20, 2020, when soldiers allegedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
The Managing Director of LCC, Abayomi Omomuwa, submitted the video footage on Tuesday, to the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government to probe the shootings, as well as complaints of human rights abuses against members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Handing over the cameras, Omomuwa said: “I can confirm that inside here is the video footage that our surveillance camera was able to record for the 20th of October.”
While testifying before the panel, the MD explained that the camera stopped working, saying: “The major cause is because of network.”
“I can confirm categorically that we never, ever, tampered with the surveillance camera. That is why we can get the footage.
“It remained there until about 8pm when it was tampered with and we couldn’t get anything,” he added.
The panel had last week paid an unscheduled visit to the Lekki toll gate as well as the military hospital in Ikoyi.
An official of the hospital, Brigadier General A.I. Taiwo, who took the panel members round the facility, said the morgue had been under renovation since October 2019.
