The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and other matters has returned control of the Lekki Toll Gate plaza to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC).
AllNews Nigeria reports that the nine-man panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government to investigate the October 2020 Lekki shooting incident approved the reopening of the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday.
The company, through its counsel, had been praying the panel to allow it to take over the plaza for repair and insurance claims since December 2020.
But the panel said the toll plaza could not be handed over as a forensic expert has been paid by the Lagos state government to examine the toll gate with respect of the October 20 shooting incident.
The prayer of the LCC was answered on Thursday when the panel gave the company access to reopen the toll gate.
The report of the forensic examination, which was meant to be ready on Tuesday, is yet to be disclosed by the panel.
