Members of the Lagos State Judicial Panel today, paid an unscheduled visit to the Military hospital, Awolowo road Ikoyi.

Reference Daily News had gathered that the panel is currently investigating the shooting of #EndSars protesters by military men at the Lekki toll gate about 10 days ago.

Ebun Adegboruwa, a lawyer who is also a member of the panel, stated that the panel got confidential information that the morgue at the military facility may be crucial to the panel’s investigation.

“We have confidential information that the military hospital here is relevant in the investigation of the Lekki event,” Adegboruwa said

“We heard this hospital is controlled by 65 Battalion and under the 81 Division. We are also taking steps to reach military authorities.”

The visit was impromptu and the Nigerian Army authorities were not informed ahead of time.

The panel members were initially denied into the premises and were locked out for about 30minutes.

But when they were finally allowed in, nothing much was achieved as they were denied access to the morgue.
