Former central senator of Kaduna, Shehu Sani, called into question all those who denied the killing of the demonstrators at the Lekki toll booth.
Sani used Twitter to react to the findings and conclusions of the Lagos State Judicial Panel on police brutality cases.
We recall that on Monday the president of the panel, Judge Doris Okuwobi (rtd), delivered two reports to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the Secretariat of State in Ikeja.
Sanwo-Olu had declared, after receiving the report, that it will be presented to the National Economic Council (NEC), chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Lagos’s #EndSARS panel in its reports indicted Nigerian police forces in the October 20, 2020 incidents that caused confusion in the country.
In the report entitled “Lekki Incident Investigation Report of 20 October 2020”, the panel said police officers who were at the toll booth physically assaulted the unarmed protesters.
The panel report added that the assault by Nigerian youth at the Lekki toll booth resulted in injuries and deaths.
The group also accused the police of attempting to cover up the shooting at the demonstrators at the Lekki toll booth by collecting bullets at the scene of the accident.
Reacting to the outcome of the panel that received praise from citizens, Shehu Sani in a post on his Twitter account, said that those who denied the Lekki massacre can now bury their shame.
He said they should accept that they have tried all possible means to cover up the truth of the incidents.
The former lawmaker tweeted: “The doubters and deniers of #LekkiMassacre should simply and humbly step out of their bubble of untruth and accept the fact that they attempted to cover the corpses with Roses.”
Sani wrote in another post: “It’s like people are holding knives and sticks and looking for who denied the Lekki massacre”
