The Lagos state government has reportedly paid a huge sum of money in hiring Forensic experts to help uncover the truth behind the Lekki Toll Gate massacre during the #EndSARS protest on October 20, 2020.
On Tuesday, January 5th, the Chairman of the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for victims of SARS and police brutality, Justice Doris Okuwobi, stated that the Forensic experts will be permitted to have access to the toll plaza for the purpose of evaluating the damage done at the toll gate.
She also disclosed that the forensic experts would have commenced its work earlier but for the holidays which made it difficult for the experts to get access to relevant documents and exhibits which have previously been tendered before the panel.
“Forensic analysis will clear a lot of issues in the incident of Oct 20, 2020, and a huge sum has been paid by the Lagos State Government for it. The desire is that the panel will unearth the truth of what happened,” Justice Okuwobi said.
“The forensic examination is expected to be completed within the next 21 days,” Channels Television reports.
