Mr. Adesina Ogunlana, a counsel for some #EndSARS protesters in Lagos State has expressed that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu should appear before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry over the shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Ogunlana cited the military’s claim before the panel that their operation on that day was on the invitation of the governor as a reason for this move.

Hence, he argued that it would be important for the governor to appear before the panel, particularly to demonstrate his professed belief in the rule of law.
Recall that Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo, last week Saturday had during his cross-examination said the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, ordered the deployment of soldiers to the tollgate and other parts of the state that day following a request by the governor.
