Temitope Majekodunmi, the Youth representative in the Lagos State Panel, which submitted its report on the killings of #EndSARS protesters in Lekki, has urged the Nigerian youths to demand justice for their slain compatriots.
He also commended survivors of the assault that happened in Lekki on Tuesday, 20th October, 2020, for coming out to testify before the panel.
Majekodunmi disclosed this, Tuesday, in a statement tagged “Youth Rep Appreciation Note” to react to the report submitted that military personnel massacred youths during at the EndSARS protest in Lekki last year.
The statement partly read, "Over a year ago, you all saddled me with the responsibility of representing the Youths at the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters. Yesterday, a detailed report from the inquiry of the Panel was submitted to the Governor of Lagos State for implementation.
"I commend Survivors and Advocates who braved the lengthy Judicial Panel hearings to arrive at what we considered "Appropriate justice" for all that may have been wronged or aggrieved.
"Secondly, a leaked report of the Panel has been in circulation since yesterday, and I got numerous calls and messages from various persons asking me to confirm if the report was authentic.
"This report is all encompassing for the reasoning of peace and justice. I am sure every one of you must have gone through the details.
"To provide a summary, you can find an Executive summary of the report on pages 11-15, Background on page 16; General proceedings on pages 17-280, Panel findings on Pages 281 304, a compendium of recommendations on pages 305-308 and the conclusion to page 309.
"The report of the panel further validates our position that peaceful protesters were injured and/or killed by security operatives who were meant to protect us. The findings of the panel and most importantly, the recommendations are now in the public domain.
"In conclusion, it is not the time to rest nor sleep, it is the time to peacefully demand accountability and ensure that the recommendations of the panel are implemented.
"It is time to ensure that our fallen heroes do not die in vain, and that citizens of Nigeria are never afraid to peacefully protest in their native country," Majekodunmi said.
