Emerging report reaching on Saturday, indicates that the Lagos State Judicial Panel on restitution for victims of SARS related abuses resumed sitting today, with the continuation of the testimony of an EndSARs Coordinator, Serah Ibrahim, who came along with several videos, some of which she said she shot personally with her iPhone.
She played the videos one after the other, and according to her, they demonstrate that Soldiers shot at the peaceful protesters on the night of October 20.
As she played the videos, she explained to the Panel that Soldiers shot at the harmless protesters, and even took away some of the dead bodies.
She specifically mentioned that one of the active protesters, Lekan Sanusi, was thought to be dead, and the Soldiers took away his body.
She later found out that he was taken to MRS Hospital, at Bonny Camp, where an unidentified Nurse helped him to escape.
Serah also played videos of some persons who suffered gunshot wounds from bullets allegedly shot by the Military, with protesters surrounding them, and trying to tend to their wounds.
When asked if she could authenticate the videos as to the time they were taken and the location, she mentioned that anyone could do this using Google Drive, and she proceeded to demonstrate how it could be done.
The videos of 2 mothers who claimed to have lost their children at the protest ground, were also played.
The videos were contained in the flash drive Serah Ibrahim tendered at the last sitting of the panel.
Serah is expected to continue her testimony on May 15.
Recall, that the Nigerian Army under the leadership of the former Chief of Army Staff, COAS, Tukur Buratai, had repeatedly denied that it fatally shot at protesters on the said night, and the President Muhammadu Buhari Federal Government had said that the reports of a massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate was fake news.
