A member of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry, Temitope Majekodunmi has explained why there are some inconsistencies in the leaked #EndSARS report.
On the night of October 20, 2020, at least 46 persons were shot dead, injured with bullets, or attacked by security forces at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos, according to the panel’s final report.
Pro-government supporters, on the other hand, have tried to dismiss the report, claiming that it is filled with inaccuracies and a testament to the panel’s terrible work.
However, Mr Majekodunmi stated that the report in circulation contained typographical problems, but that the final copy was approved once the flaws were addressed.
The leaked paper is “not far from the original,” he claimed, “but I can confirm that the original is free of all the detected mistakes.”
In his words: “Furthermore, we did approve the report for print after several reviews of typographical errors, omission of some documents but duplicated as final edit; final, final edits and final of the finals of edit,” Mr Majekodunmi.
“Regardless of errors identified, it is important that we stick to the facts of the findings and its recommendations contained therein and also interpret appropriately. This report is all-encompassing for the reasoning of peace and justice. I am sure every one of you must have gone through the details
“The report of the panel further validates our position that peaceful protesters were injured and/or killed by security operatives, who were meant to protect us. The findings of the panel and most importantly, the recommendations, are now in the public domain.”
