#EndSARS: Youth Reps End Boycott, Return To Lagos Judicial Panel
After a week’s break, the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on October 20 resumed sitting on Saturday.
The resumption followed the return of the two youth panel members, Rinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi, who abstained last week in protest against the freezing of bank accounts of #EndSARS promoters by the Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria.
