Serah Ibrahim, one of the coordinators of the #EndSARS protest, on Saturday submitted to the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for victims of SARS and other related matters a used bullet and two flash drives as evidence of shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate.
In her testimony at the resumed sitting of the panel at Lekki, Ibrahim said she witnessed how soldiers and later policemen shot innocent protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
The witness had told the panel at a previous sitting that she was at the protest ground in Lekki every day, coordinating some of the activities and she was an eyewitness to the shooting on the night of October 20, 2020.
Led in evidence by her counsel, Yinka Olumide-Fusika (SAN), on Saturday, Ibrahim, who described herself as a freelance auditor, continued her testimony of the events of the night on Saturday.
She tendered in evidence two flash drives containing photos and videos that suggested that the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) had more visuals in its custody capable of revealing what exactly transpired on the night of the incident.
According to her, the evidence suggested that the LCC had more cameras on the ground on the night of the incident to show what really happened during the Lekki shooting.
The witness told the panel that over five different cameras were on the ground, but most of them have now been removed.
She narrated how soldiers shot at protesters, as well as the conduct of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and some operatives of the Maroko Police Station, who she claimed also shot at protesters.
“This was the live one (bullet) that was cocked in front of me; I picked it myself,” Ibrahim said.
She also alleged that a hospital refused to release information about some of the protesters receiving treatment after the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate.
The panel subsequently admitted in evidence the flash drives and the bullet which Ibrahim said she picked from the floor during the shooting.
It also granted the request of Ibrahim’s lawyer to summon K. F. Gbajumo, the Director of Hospital Administration of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), who allegedly issued a memo prohibiting his staff from giving out information on the victims.
