#OccupyLekki: Outstanding #EndSARS Protester, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, Threatens To Stepdown From #EndSARS Panel


A human rights lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN), today called for the unconditional release of all protesters arrested at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.

The senior advocate said he was “saddened and devastated” by the dehumanization of the protesters by security operatives today.

Adegboruwa, who is also a member of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki toll gate, said he could not continue to sit at the panel when fresh assaults were being perpetrated with impunity. He added that he was still consulting with civil societies to take a decision.


He stated this in a statement titled, ‘The Arrest, Detention and Dehumanization of Protesters at Lekki Toll Gate Are Unacceptable’.

He said, “I have been monitoring events at the Lekki Toll Gate since morning, and I am totally overwhelmed with the images, videos, and sundry evidence of police brutality of armless civilians, who ventured to protest at the Toll Gate. In one particular video, I saw citizens of Nigeria being dehumanized, stripped half-naked, and cramped together in a rickety bus. This is totally unacceptable.
