The Lagos State Judicial Panel set up by the Lagos government to investigate the Lekki shooting has approved the reopening of the Lekki Toll gate.
This came after the LCC prayed to the panel on Thursday for the Toll gate to be reopened after its closure in October 2020.
The Chairman of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi gave a ruling allowing the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) Ltd to repossess the toll gate.
Justice Okuwobi sitting with four other members of the panel listened to arguments for and against the application made by counsel to the LCC Ltd, Demola Seriki for the re-opening of the facility.
The other four members who sat with Justice Okuwobi are Segun Awosanya( Popularly known as Segalink), Oluwatoyin Odusanya (Director, Citizens right), DIG Taiwo Lakanu ( representing the police) and Lucas Koyejo (from the National Human Rights Commission).
Following the panel ruling the LCC’s favour, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa walked in with the other three members of the panel, Patience Udoh (representing civil society), Rinuola Oduola and Temitope Majekodunmi (representing the youths).
They all proceeded to deliver dissenting decisions to the effect that they were not in support of the repossession and the reopening of the Lekki toll plaza.
