Lekki Shooting: Military morgue under renovation - Army tells Panel

A military official identified as Brigadier General AI Taiwo on Friday told members of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the Lekki shootings that the Military Hospital morgue has been under renovation since October 2019.

Taiwo made this known this afternoon when the panel members paid an unscheduled visit to the military hospital in the Ikoyi area of the state.

After initial resistance by the soldiers, which lasted for about 30 minutes, the panel members were allowed on the hospital premises.

The brigadier general and other soldiers took members of the panel led by the chairman, Retired Justice Doris Okwuobi, to the morgue in the hospital.

It was, however, observed that there was renovation ongoing in the facility.

Asked if there was a functional morgue in the hospital, Taiwo said, “This place has been under renovation since October last year.”

The chairman of the panel, however, thanked Taiwo and his men for their cooperation.
