Actress Caroline Danjuma has demanded justice for the victims of the #EndSARS protest at Lekki toll gate in Lagos.

The Lagos State panel of inquiry on restitution for victims of police brutality on Monday revealed that nine persons were killed at the toll gate when soldiers stormed the area on October 20, 2020, to disperse #EndSARS.

Reacting in an Instagram post on Tuesday, Caroline said that those behind the killings should be brought to justice.

“Who gave the order? Who switched off the toll gate billboard lights and why was the CCTV footage doctored? We don’t need your apology, we need you all behind bars. Far away from any political office in Nigeria,” she wrote.

According to the panel, at least 48 protesters were either shot dead, injured with bullet wounds or assaulted by soldiers. Nine protesters were confirmed dead, while four were presumed dead.

Among the 48 listed as victims of the incident, the panel said about 20 sustained gunshot injuries, while 13 others were assaulted by the military.

It identified those killed as Victor Ibanga, Abuta Solomon, Jide, Olalekan Ashafa, Olamilekan Ajasa, Kolade Salami, Folorunsho Olabisi, Kenechukwu Ugoh and Nathaniel Solomon.

Those presumed dead are Abiodun Adesanya, Ifeanyi Eji, Tola and Wisdom.
