EndSARS: LCC Protest Video Footage Reveals Nothing – Vanguard Review

A review of the protest video presented to the Lagos EndSARS panel by Lekki Concession Company, LCC shows that the video failed to capture the shooting that took place at the Lekki toll gate.

Vanguard had previously reported that the chairman of the panel, Judge Okuwobi, had ordered the court parties to view the three hours of footage today.

A review of our correspondent’s video covering the procedure showed that the recording that started at 5 pm ended at 7:59 pm on October 20, 2020.

The video lacked audio and intermittently approached different directions at the protest site.

In the first hour of the recording, the video showed protesters at the protest site walking. It also showed a roadblock to the Isla Victoria toll booth.

At approximately 6:46 p.m., six security patrol vans were sighted approaching the toll gate from the Victoria Island hub.

The six patrol vans caused a stir among the protesters, as some of them were seen driving away from the protest site.

The security vans remained in the same location with their siren lights on for most of the footage.

The video began showing nighttime footage around 7:20 p.m. with protesters still at the scene.

At approximately 7:48 p.m., the video showed burning tires and he remained fixed on the scene for minutes. At 7:59 p.m., when the video should have ended, it continued to play but remained fixed on two security vehicles.

When an attorney on the matter brought to the panel’s attention that the video coverage time had elapsed, the panel chairman insisted that the video should continue.

However, around 8 p.m., the video ended to the disappointment of many who were waiting to see LCC’s CCTV video version of the toll shooting.

The lawyer for some of the EndSAR protesters, Adeshina Ogunlana, told the panel when the video ended that part of the video was missing.

The panel chairman took note of his observation and said the matter will be discussed when the panel returns from a short break.
