A member of the Lagos State judicial panel of inquiry on #EndSARS protest and cases of police brutality Temitope Majekodunmi says there are errors in the version of the panel’s report which was leaked to the public.
The panel had on Monday submitted its report of over 300 pages to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
In the leaked report, the panel indicted the Nigerian Army for shooting at protesters on October 20, 2020 and confirmed that nine people died while four were presumed dead.
Mr Majekodunmi, who represented the youth on the panel, however said the only report he is aware of “is that we have submitted.”
According to him, the leaked report could be one of those the panel was vetting prior to the presentation of the report to Mr Sanwo-Olu.
“There are no two reports. The only report we have is that, that we have submitted to the appointing authority on the 15th of November 2021,” he said in an interview on Arise TV on Wednesday.
“The leaked report, like I have dropped a statement yesterday, could be one of the ones we were vetting to reach a very conclusive report because we had reasons as a panel to vet repeatedly our report, to ensure that it is void of any error.
“It is worrisome for us that we had it leaked. I, as the youth rep, was very surprised. We were still at Alausa that very evening when the leaked copy was already in circulation. But then, we felt that it only speaks to more accountability.
“Like I had been saying before now that the content of the leaked report is not far from the original. The facts are same but maybe in the original, most of these errors are corrected.”
