The Lagos State Panel of Judicial Inquiry probing police brutality and the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate resumed today after suspending sittings for a week.

The retired Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel was, last Saturday, forced to suspend its sittings due to the boycott of the panel sitting by the two youth representatives on the panel – Oluwarinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi.

The youths had boycotted the panel sitting in protest against the freezing of the bank accounts of 20 #EndSARS promoters by the Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria.

One of the frozen accounts belongs to Oduala.

Commenting on the absence of the youth members last Saturday, the Chairman of the judicial panel, Justice Okuwobi, had said without the youths, the panel could not form a quorum and had no other option but to adjourned till today.

However, the panel resume sitting today with the two youth members.

The panel is set to take the testimony of the Nigerian Army, whose witness is already at the witness stand.
