A lawyer representing among the #EndSARS protesters, Mr. Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika (SAN), mentioned his group is contemplating submitting an investigative report from Cable Information Community to the Lagos State Judicial Investigation Panel investigating the alleged dying of protesters # EndSARS by troopers on the evening of October 20 on the Lekki toll sales space.
CNN, in its investigative report entitled ‘Like a bloody evening of bullets and brutality, annihilated a younger protest motion in Nigeria’, implicated the Nigerian Military for extrajudicial homicide of peaceable demonstrators.
Though the Nigerian Military has constantly claimed that its troops that confronted the #EndSARS protesters solely fired clean bullets into the air, the CNN report instructed that actual bullets had been used and that among the protesters had been in reality killed within the operation.
The Federal Authorities condemned CNN’s investigative report, however the media home mentioned it stored it.
Olumide-Fusika, who’s representing some protesters earlier than the investigation panel, mentioned that a few of his shoppers claimed to have suffered gunshot wounds on the toll.
Requested on Sunday whether or not he was contemplating presenting CNN’s investigative report back to the panel, Olumide-Fusika advised our correspondent that, “We’re contemplating this.”
The lawyer, when questioning the Nigerian Military witness earlier than the panel, Brigadier Normal Ahmed Taiwo, questioned the military’s choice to undergo the panel a report by the British Broadcasting Company on the incident.
“You introduced solely the BBC report as a result of the report was palatable to you; you didn’t submit studies from Aljazeera and Deutsche Welle as a result of they weren’t palatable to you, “mentioned Olumide-Fusika to Taiwo, who merely replied,” It was the BBC that we noticed. “
