Babatunde Fashola falsified evidence at the toll station in Lekki – Lagos jury said
According to the Lagos State Judicial Commission on Police Brutality, Minister of Labor and Housing Babatunde Fashola tampered with evidence at the toll station during yesterday’s inspection of the premises.
Former Governor Babatunde Fasola yesterday discovered a hidden camera at the Lecchi toll station, Admiralty Circle, in Lagos.
Fashola discovered the device while touring the site where #EndSARS protesters had been demonstrating for 13 days before being forcibly dispersed.
On Tuesday, men in military uniforms broke into a toll collection point in Lekki, where unarmed protesters were present, and opened fire on them.
There is disagreement over the number of killed and wounded.
On Sunday, ministers and governors of the Southwest conducted an on-site assessment of some of the sites vandalized in the violence that followed the #EndSARS protest.
It was during the visit that Fachola discovered a camera, which, according to him, should have been planted by “some subversive elements.”
Responding to this, Ebunolu Adegboruwa, a member of the Lagos Judicial Panel on Police Atrocities, described the inspection as “illegal falsification of evidence.”
Mr. Adegboruwa stated that;
“Since the jurisdiction of the jury rests with Lekki Toll Plaza, I sincerely believe that any other visit to this Lekki Toll Plaza in the absence, without the permission and consent of the jury, is illegal.”
He added that the Lagos Judicial Commission would consider the delegation’s inspection of the site as disrespectful and that the jury would summon those who, in their opinion, obstructed the administration of justice.
The panel, chaired by Judge Doris Okuvobi, starts today at the Lagos Arbitration Center, Lekki.
