Nigerians on Tuesday expressed their view about the statement of the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on the report submitted by the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters.
Lai Mohammed during a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday had described the report of the panel as fake, saying the document was full of discrepancies and errors.
Recall that the panel led by Justice Doris Okuwobi submitted the report to the Lagos State Government, claiming that not less than eleven people were killed at the Lekki tollgate protest, on October 20, 2020.
The minister in his statement further said that the Lagos judicial panel failed to address some of the issues raised by a ballistic expert that testified before it and the testimonies of the Nigerian Army.
Mohammed also knocked the panel for compiling allegations made by Nigerians and submitting them as a report to the Lagos state government, adding that the panel failed to investigate the claims of police brutality.
Meanwhile, the statement of the minister has been condemned by Nigerians who believe the federal government has a hidden agenda on the report submitted by the panel.
Some Nigerians noted that they are not surprised by the statement of the Minister who they believed would describe the report of the panel as fake.
