Lagos state government has paid forensic experts huge sum to reveal the real truth of what happened at the Lekki toll gate on 20th October 2020. Nigerians are still waiting for the findings of the Lagos state Judicial panel investigating the bloody incident at Lekki tollgate
This recent development was made known by Justice Doris Okuwobi, the Chairman of the panel while ruling on an application filed by the Lekki Concession Company today 5th January 2020
The Lekki Concession Company had applied for permission to access the toll plaza in order to evaluate the damages done at the toll plaza and estimate cost of repair for them to start the repair. But their application was ruled out.
Justice Okuwobi noted that the forensic experts would have commenced their work earlier but due to the holidays which hindered the experts access to some relevant documents and material. But the forensic experts are expected to finish their examination within the next 21 days.
So the application tendered by the Lekki Concession company for permission to have access to the toll gate must be onhold and await the outcome of the forensic expert’s examination.
The panel, thereafter, adjourned to January 29 for further consideration of the application after the result of the forensic experts would have been out.
