The Managing Director, Lekki Concession Company (LCC), Abayomi Omomuwa, has revealed that the CCTV Cameras at the Lekki Toll Gate, were tampered with and stopped recording at 8pm Nigerian time, on October 20 when soldiers allegedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
Mr Abayomi informed the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry that the Closed-Circuit Television camera of the company did not capture the shooting of peaceful #ENDSARS protesters by the Nigerian Army.
Explaining why the camera stopped working, Omomuwa said, “The major cause is because of network.”
“I can confirm categorically 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 that the fire outbreak at the Ikoyi Bridge affected the CCTV cameras and it stopped recording.
Mr Abayomi also insisted that the company complied with the curfew and asked staff to leave in adherence with the directive of the state government. Adding that the company withdrew its staff from the toll gate following the takeover of the toll gate by the protesters.
Recall that on that fateful day, soldiers opened fire on peaceful #ENDSARS protesters, killing not less than a dozen protesters with many sustaining bullet wounds.
