The Lagos State Panel of Judicial Inquiry probing police brutality and the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate resumed sitting Saturday.

The Panel was 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.
