A leading #EndSARS lawyer, Adeshina Ogunlana has disclosed that three bodies from the massacre at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020, were perforated with missiles.

The lawyer made this known in a Channels Television interview on Monday, July 24 following a statement by the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency confirming a move by the state government to carry out a mass burial for 103 victims of #EndSARS close to three years after their deaths.

According to him, some bodies were recovered from the Lekki tollgate while some of them were perforated with missiles.

"Around the area of the Lekki Tollgate, some bodies were retrieved and some of the bodies were dropped at the General Hospital at Lagos Island and all that. So for govt not to be saying that there was nobody, in fact, they used the name, there was no named citizen," he said.

"Now the question I want to ask them this question, even the 103 corpses that they want to dispose of, do they have any names? And I want to correct the impression that the bodies that were recovered around the environs of the Lekki tollgate when Baba Fafunwa was speaking, he at least identified three that was perforated with missiles."
