#EndSars Lawyer, Mr Adesina Ogunlana, has stated that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu must appear before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the shooting which occurred at Lekki tollgate on October 20.
Recounting how the Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo alleged that soldiers were deployed after Governor Sanwo-Olu reached out to them, Ogunlana stated that it will be important for the governor to appear before the panel, particularly to demonstrate his professed belief in the rule of law.
When asked if the appearance of the governor was important to the case of his clients and whether he would be pushing for the governor’s appearance before the panel, Ogunlana told 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.”
