Abayomi Omamuwasan, the Managing Director of Lekki Concession Company, LCC, has appeared before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the October 20 shooting at Lekki toll plaza.
In his introductory examination, Rotimi Seriki, counsel to LCC, asked Omamuwasan to authenticate the evidences they had brought before the panel. Omamuwasan subsequently authenticated the documents including footage, photographs, and a letter debunking the company planned to unleash the police on protesters on the fateful evening.
Seriki further sought the leave of the panel to tender the evidences as exhibits, a request the latter obliged.
Continuing, Seriki also sought to place the video evidence in the well of the court. That too was obliged. As explained by the Panel Chairperson, Justice Doris Okuwobi would use its discretion on how and when to show the video.
