The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters, has released the detail of some casualties of Lekki Toll Gate shooting of October 20, 2020, during the ENDSARS protest.

The Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel, which submitted its 309-page report to Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday, November 15, 2021, listed 48 casualties from the Lekki shooting, noted that 11 were confirmed dead, four missing and presumed dead, while others suffered gunshot injury, severe assault among others.

The panel said the shooting of the protesters can be equated to a ‘massacre’ in context.

“The atrocious maiming and killing of unarmed, helpless and unresisting protesters, while sitting on the floor and waving their Nigerian flags, while singing the National Anthem can be equated to a ‘massacre’ in context,” the panel said in its findings.

This is contrary to claims by both the Nigerian Government and security agencies that no one was killed in the attack on protesters at the Lekki Tollgate and the specific claim of the Nigerian Army that soldiers deployed to the scene shot into the air and did not use live bullets.
