Coastal News

Men of the Nigeria Army on Friday, did not allow members of the Lagos judicial panel on #EndSARS enter the Military hospital in Ikoyi.

News men gathered that the panel paid an unplanned visit to the morgue to verify if truly the Soldiers carried some corpses as some protesters who were at the scene of the shooting claim.

The judicial team is investigating the shooting at Lekki tollgate which occurred on October 20, where 15 protesters were allegedly killed by Soldiers.

A member of the panel, Ebun Adegboruwa, told the Soldiers that the panel came to the hospital because it had intelligence that might help with its investigation.

“The facility is relevant to our investigation. We have a pathologist. We are here on the authority of the president, not only the Governor,” he said.

“We are following due process, and it is important we visit the mortuary as it will help our findings.”

“If we are not allowed access, we will go back and take other actions. We won’t force ourselves in. We have confidential information that the military hospital here is relevant in the investigation of the Lekki event.”

“We heard this hospital is controlled by the 65 battalion and under the 81 division. We are also taking steps to reach military authorities.” he concluded.
