Nigerian Army Disbands Legal Team, Pulls out of Lagos Panel Investigating Lekki Shooting As More Evidence Resurfaces  

For the Lagos State Judicial Panel, the Nigerian Army has disbanded its legal team, effectively pulling out of the investigative hearing as more evidence resurfaces confirming that last October Nigerian soldiers shot peaceful protesters.

S.N. Agwhe, a member of the panel’s military counsel, made the Judicial Panel aware of the development on Saturday.

Agwhe appeared on behalf of the military legal team before the panel, but revealed that the military counsel’s work was completed on 21 November.

“In any subsequent proceedings, we do not have any further mandate to represent the army,” Agwhe told the panel.

He reminded the panel that the head of the military legal team, Akinlolu Kehinde, had previously submitted a memo notifying the panel of the decision.

It was the third time in a row that the Army and its counsel failed to appear before the panel at the last hearing on January 23.

However, panel chairman Doris Okuwobi, a retired judge, warned that when the panel submits its findings to the government, the military would not claim a denial of a fair hearing.

The Army’s withdrawal from the panel comes after Reddington Hospital testified on October 20, 21 and 22 about treating victims of the #EndSARS protest with bullet wounds.

Petitioners alleged that soldiers opened fire on peaceful protesters, killing and injuring several protesters, causing the Army to be summoned before the investigation panel of the judiciary.

After initial denials, the Nigerian Army reluctantly confessed to being at the scene of the Lekki shootings. Nevertheless, it denied opening fire on the protesters, many of whom were sitting on the floor singing the national anthem.

The military claims, however, that officers were sent out to enforce a curfew imposed by the state government of Lagos, but did not open fire on peaceful protesters.
