The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry investigating cases of police brutality and Lekki Tollgate incident resumed, Saturday, after suspending sittings for a week.
The retired Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel was, last Saturday, forced to suspend its sittings due to the boycott of the panel sitting by the two youth representatives on the panel – Oluwarinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi.
The youths had boycotted the panel sitting in protest against the freezing of the bank accounts of 20 #EndSARS promoters by the Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria.
One of the frozen accounts belongs to Oduala.
Commenting on the absence of the youth members last Saturday, the Chairman of the judicial panel, Justice Okuwobi, had said without the youths, the panel could not form a quorum and had no other option but to adjourn till today.
However, the panel resumed sitting today with the two youth members.
The panel is set to take the testimony of the Nigerian Army, whose witness is already at the witness stand.Follow us on social media
