Lekki shootings: Officials at the military morgue where members of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for Restitution for Victims of SARS and related abuses and Other Matters have disclosed that it is under renovation.
If you recall, members of the Judicial Panel had been denied access into the morgue upon their visit after they considered the visitation as part of the ongoing investigation into the Lekki shootings.
Recall that the panel led by its chairman, Justice Doris Okuwobi (retd.) were initially denied access to the hospital for about 30 minutes before they were allowed into the premises.
The military officials told the panel that the morgue has been under renovation since late 2019. It was gathered that Brigadier General AI Taiwo and Colonel G.S Ogoh took the panel to the morgue where the ongoing renovation was confirmed, Daily Trust reports.
This is coming after a member of the panel, Mr. Ebun Adegboruwa (SAN) said they got an impromptu confidential information that the facility at the hospital may be relevant to its investigation. He said the panel is interested in visiting the morgue to assess bodies in the facility.
The panel however left the facility after a brief discussion between a senior military officer and Justice Okuwobi (Rtd) without entertaining questions from journalists.
