Mixed reactions have trailed the White Paper on the Judicial Panel of Inquiry report set up to probe the Lekki Toll Gate October 20, 2020 incident.
NNL reports Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu inaugurated the judicial panel headed by Justice Doris Okuwobi to investigate petitions on police brutality in the state and alleged shootings of protesters on October 20, 2020.
On November 15, the panel submitted two reports — one on police brutality cases and another on the Lekki incident investigation.
Following the submission of the panel’s report, Sanwo-Olu constituted a four-member committee to come up with a white paper on the recommendations of the panel.
