- So far 235 petitions have been received by the panel, there were 14 cases related to the Lekki shooting
One of the coordinators of the #EndSARS protest, Serah Ibrahim, says she witnessed how soldiers and later policemen shot innocent protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
She made the statement on Saturday in her testimony at the resumed sitting of the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for victims of SARS and other related matters.
At a previous sitting, the witness told the panel 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.
The panel is racing against time after it got a three-month extension to complete the hearing and give decisions in the 235 petitions it received from the public.
To make up for some of the time lost to the Easter holidays, the panel listed 17 cases for hearing on Saturday as opposed to about 10 to 12 it usually hears at a sitting.
