Lagos releases White Paper on EndSARS panel report

The Lagos State Government has released its White Paper on the EndSARS panel’s report into the October 20, 2020, Lekki toll gate incident.

The Babajide Sanwo-Olu government faulted the panel’s report that nine persons were killed at the toll gate when soldiers stormed the protest ground to disperse the protesters.

The government also flayed some claims in the reports, maintaining that it was full of discrepancies, irregularities and inaccuracies with claims of deaths of victims, even when some paragraphs of the same report revealed different claims and assertions.

It added that 14 recommendations fall outside its powers and would be forwarded to the Federal government for consideration.
