James Duddridge, the UK Minister of Africa, has harped on the importance for Lagos states judicial panel to investigate incidents reported by #End SARS Peaceful protesters at Lekki Toll Gate.
James Duddridge made this known after a call with Governor Sanwo –Olu of Lagos state reacted to the recent #End SARS protests across Nigeria.
On his Twitter page, Duddridge wrote: “I had my first call with Lagos Governor @jidesanwoolu today. We agreed on the importance of @LagosSarsPanel receiving full authority and cooperation to investigate incidents, including at Lekki plus greater UK-Lagos cooperation on infrastructure, tech and green finance.”
Recall that some #End SARS protesters were allegedly shot at #LEKKI TOLL GATE on the 20th of October, 2020 during a peaceful protest.
This led to investigations and setting up of a judicial panel in the Lagos state.
The Lagos State Government set up the Judicial Panel of Inquiry, to probe the #Lekki Toll Gate shootings and several complaints of human rights abuses against members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Consequently, bank accounts of those who received funds linked to the #End SARS campaign have been blocked by CBN as directed by the federal government.
