The Lagos state government said it accepted 11 out of the 32 recommendations made by the Judicial panel of inquiry.
This is contained in the White Paper on the #EndSARS Panel of Inquiry report released by the Lagos State Government on Tuesday.
The “white paper” is the official document of the government’s analysis and proposed solutions in the report.
The document also stated that 14 of the recommendations fall outside the powers of the state and will consequently be forwarded to the Federal Government for consideration.
The government disagreed that nine persons were killed at the toll gate when soldiers stormed the protest ground to disperse the protesters.
It described the panel’s claim that nine persons were shot dead as “assumptions and speculations”.
A leaked version of the report had indicted the Nigerian Army and the Lagos State Government in the killing of unarmed protesters and a subsequent cover-up of the incident at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.
