UK Minister of Africa, James Duddridge, on Wednesday spoke on the importance of the Lagos judicial panel to investigate the shooting of End SARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos State.
Duddridge stated this after reaching out to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on a call.
He took to his Twitter account and wrote, “I had my first call with Lagos Governor @jidesanwoolu today.”
“We agreed on the importance of @LagosSarsPanel receiving full authority and cooperation to investigate incidents, including at Lekki plus a greater UK-Lagos cooperation on infrastructure, tech and green finance.”
The Lagos State Government had set up the panel to probe the Lekki Toll Gate shootings and several complaints of human rights abuses against members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
