Yesterday 30th January 2021 was a day of reckoning at the Justice Doris Okuwobi led Lagos State Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and other matters as Reddington Hospital reveals gunshot victims at the lekki massacre and disclosed that they treated an overwhelming number of persons with gunshots or other wounds from the Lekki Toll Gate on the night of last October 20.
The number of persons brought to the facility that night was so many that staff at the hospital’s Lekki and Victoria Island branches were overwhelmed by the crowd according to one Dr. Babajide Lawson who is the Head of Trauma and orthopedic surgeon at Reddington Hospital.
“On that 20th, a lot of the patients were treated at Lekki branch. Later that night, I went there myself to assess the level of assistance needed, spoke with the MD of that branch & transferred a patient to our HQ in VI where I work from.
On the first night, there were about six patients that I saw that night, but as the days went by, others trickled in.
Those I personally treated include Ajogwu Japheth, Philemon Lucky, Samuel Oshola, Nnaji Madam, Bright Osariemen, Damilola Adedayo, and Joshua Samuel” in the testimony of Lawson.
The Nigerian Army has been accused of shooting at harmless protesters at the event of the #EndSars protest on 20th October 2020 after Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Owu declared a curfew in the state, despite pictorial evidence circulated social media by eyewitnesses live on the ground at the Lekki toll gate, and an investigative documentary by CNN, the FG, and the Nigerian Army denied and tagged it all fake news.
Slowly, the lack of ethics displayed by the Nigerian Army that swore to defend and protect every Nigerian that day was a sham of the side of the Military, Lagos state government, and the FG at large is beginning to come to the limelight with this latest developments. Validinfo is here as the story unravels.
