EndSARS: Full List Of Protesters Killed, Injured At Lekki Toll Gate

Human rights activist, Dabiraoluwa Adeyinka, has asserted that the current administration should compensate survivors of the Lekki Toll Gate shooting.

She insisted that the government should apologize to the victims, as well as punish the perpetrators of the shooting.

Adeyinka stated this on Friday during an interview with Arise News.

She noted that justice would not be served until answers were provided as to who ordered the shooting on that day.

According to Adeyinka, “The bone of contention is until these questions are answered, who ordered the shooting? We now have a new regime, they should be able to give us a soft landing to say who are the people. Who ordered the shooting? These are citizens that were killed. I was there, I almost got killed. So, if I had died, nobody would be speaking for me, that means that’s my end, that’s my parents’ loss.”

“We will continue to remember until justice is served, and we expect that this new administration will even attend to this matter because according to the state, we have like 103 bodies that are awaiting mass burial.”

“The panel recommended and acknowledged that there was a massacre. The panel also recommended that all the survivors should be compensated. Now, there was a reaching out from the governor, that was not the panel’s recommendation, all these should be acknowledged.”
