LEKKI TOLLGATE SHOOTING: Judicial Panel of Inquiry Gives Greenlight for Tollgate Reopening

Barely four months after the October 20 Lekki Tollgate massacre, the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government to investigate the incident has given the greenlight for the reopening of the gate.

On Saturday, the Panel which was made up of 9 men, officially handed over the control of the Gate to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC).

It was gathered that the LCC had since December 2020 been soliciting the Panel to allow it resume control of the gate and its plaza, but their appeal was turned down because at the time, the State Government had contracted forensic investigators to look into the case.

But things changed on Thursday, when the Panel finally approved their appeal and officially announced the handover of the plaza back to the LCC.
