Estimated Reading Time: 1

The Lagos State government has committed a large huge sum of money to commence the forensic examination of the Lekki Toll Gate.

The news was disclosed by the Chairman of the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for victims of SARS and police brutality, Justice Doris Okuwobi, on Tuesday while ruling on an application filed by the Lekki Concession Company.

The forensic examination is needed ahead of the Lekki Concession Company request to evaluate the extent of damage done at the tollgate in order to commence necessary repairs. 

“Forensic analysis will clear a lot of issues in the incident of Oct 20, 2020, and a huge sum has been paid by the Lagos State Government for it. The desire is that the panel will unearth the truth of what happened,” Justice Okuwobi said.

“The application by the LCC for permission to have access to the toll gate must, therefore, await the outcome of the forensic examination”.

The forensic examination is expected to be completed within the next 21 days.
