The Lagos state judiciary panel has produced a list of those killed or declared missing following gunshots at Lekki toll gate during the #EndSARS demonstration in October 2020.

In its 309-page report, which was made public, the commission named 48 people as victims of the Lekki tollgate incident on October 20, 2020. Males are responsible for 47 of the victims, while females are responsible for one.

According to the panel, soldiers allegedly chose bullet shells on the night of October 20 and officials followed up on the morning of October 21 to pick bullet shells.

Security agents and LASEHMU (Lagos State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit) retrieved multiple unidentified bodies and deposited them at various hospital mortuaries in Lagos state, according to the panel.

The soldiers' refusal of ambulances, which may have aided in the early and effective care of injured demonstrators, was also highlighted as harsh and inhumane, and it contributed greatly to the large number of deaths and casualties. 

The report read; 

“It was alleged and corroborated that the soldiers had their vans parked at the Lekki Toll Gate and removed as many bodies and corpses of the fallen.

“One of the protesters who was shot and taken for dead, Olalekan Sanusi, who eventually escaped to narrate his ordeal and experience stated that 11 corpses were in the van where he was placed in and presumed dead.

“Miss Dabira Ayuku also corroborated the above by stating that she saw about 7 dead bodies placed in one of the military trucks at the Lekki Toll Gate on the night of 20th October, 2020.

“It was alleged and corroborated that soldiers picked bullet shells on the night of October 20 and policemen followed up in the morning of October 21 to pick bullet shells.

“Several unidentified bodies were removed by security agencies and LASEHMU (Lagos State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit) and deposited at various hospital mortuaries in Lagos state.

“Three (3) trucks with brushes underneath were brought to the Lekki Toll Gate in the morning of October 21st October, 2020 to clean up the scene of bloodstains and other evidence.

“There was abundant evidence before the panel that the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) indicated in its Twitter handle that it had effectively cleaned up the Lekki Toll Gate scene immediately after the incident of October 20, 2020.

“The denial of ambulances by the soldiers, which could have assisted in the prompt and effective treatment of injured protesters, was cruel and inhuman and it contributed immensely to the large number of deaths and casualties on the part of the protesters, especially those from the Lekki Toll Gate.

“The panel finds the cases of death or injured protesters as credible and

uncontroverted.”
