Lagos #EndSARS Judicial Panel Of Enquiry Watches Lekki Tollgate CCTV Video

Published by Nairaland on Sun, 22 Nov 2020

Editi Effing gives update as Lagos State #EndSARS Judicial Panel of Enquiry members watch CCTV footage from the Lekki Tollgate shootings.<br><br><blockquote> <iframe class=youtube src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/nRFifceo88k" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch'v=nRFifceo88k">https://www.youtube.com/watch'v=nRFifceo88k</a><br><br>09:55 At the Lagos State #EndSARS Judicial Panel of Enquiry.<br><br>Its one month since the morning of the powers above my control speech, and we may finally be watching the footage from the night of #LekkiMassacre.<br><br>The military are here, so are the lawyers. And lots of cameras!<br><br>09:46 At the Lagos State #EndSARS Judicial Panel of Enquiry on this one month remembrance of the #LekkiMassacre. <br><br>A near empty room. The panel registrar is watching a political TV segment from his phone rather loudly. <br><br>More petitioners have come to submit their letters.<br><br>10:27 The punctuality record for the panel is 10:21. That was the first day the Army made an appearance. <br><br>We arent breaking that record today, but the panel is here, 6 minutes off that 10:21 record. <br><br>Mr. Ebun Adegboruwa is not here again. Trying to figure what is up with him.<br><br>10:30 LCC have been called, as their testimony and video has import on the Armys testimony. <br><br>LCC MD is here. Late, but here all right. LCC and LASG legal are here. <br><br>For #Endsars, we have Mr O and the retired boxer, Mr. Fusika.<br><br>10:38 Mr. O is up now to speak to the integrity of the video supplied by LCC. <br><br>Mr. O seems to suggest we watch per minute footage, 4PM - 7:58PM. Owonikoko, SAN agrees. <br><br>Going to be a long ride.<br><br>10:46 NEPAAAAAAAA!!!! NEPA have taken light. <br><br>10:47 UP NEPAAAAAAA!!! <br><br>Power is back! The LCC video is being played from 5pm.<br><br>10:54 As with the first day, when the footage was shown, the strategy is to show the protests were peaceful. <br><br>Another important point is that so far, the camera is as being panned automatically. But the #EndSARS lawyers believe later on, it was being operated manually. <br><br>Why'<br><br>11:02 If you look at the video, every time the camera pans, it shows PRESET # at the bottom right (# = Number). <br><br>Thats because the camera movement is programmed. Its believed that later on, the preset were overridden by LCC staff. <br><br>But LCC say all staff were gone by 4pm. <br><br>11:30 The CCTV video we are watching isnt ghen ghen like the CNN one. It has no sound. So people are falling asleep. Lady in frame 4 is jejely drinking her Fanta. <br><br>Man (and woman) definitely more be wood. <br><br>Meanwhile, 17:55 on the CCTV now playing.<br><br>11:51 we are at 18:05 of the CCTV clip now. So far, no hoodlums trying to burn down Oriental Hotel as alleged by the Army testimony. Just people milling around. <br><br>Weve also noted on human intervention in the video preset movement. This confirms LCC staff were at work past 4pm.<br><br>12:00 At about 18:12, the crowd is growing at the toll gate. More people actually arrived after the 4PM curfew time (although the curfew did get push to 9PM). <br><br>Still no hoodlums.<br><br>12:22 Its now 18:37 on the video. People are milling around, nothing serious going on. <br><br>In a way, it feels like the quiet before the storm. Military is believed to have arrived about 18:55.<br><br>Thats also when its believed the LCC staff took over manual camera control.<br><br>12:29 Scratch last tweet. 18:41 is about when the military arrived.<br><br>12:30 At 18:43, protesters running away, not stoning the military as has been alleged.<br><br>12:36 As at 18:48, the video is being handled manually. You can see from the changes that its no longer preset.<br><br>LCC had claimed all staff left the facility. The video shows this to be untrue.<br><br>Also, power is off in only one section - the security lights. All other lights on. <br><br>12:38 The guy showing the video has technical challenges. The audience starts Something is wrong. People here are highly suspicious of government. <br><br>But the video is back. 18:49 military are sweeping the area. Some protesters run away. Others gather (this video is silent).<br><br>12:43 Please note the image from the video. The lights on the express lane are still on, while the lights near the toll gate are off. <br><br>12:45 At about 18:52, the video was switched to black and white format. While we lost colour, we can also see clearly. <br><br>The video is fully manual. There is power at the toll gate.<br><br>12:47 We just saw the 18:56 moment when the lights on the express lane and beyond were turned off. <br><br>Some military trucks have crossed to the protesters side of the toll. A bullet is seen flying though the air. From what we were told, blanks dont have that kind of trajectory.<br><br>12:52 About 19:00 is the last stand. The military move in and the crowd starts dispersing. <br><br>Lower right of the screen are soldiers moving into position as protesters vacate. This matches what was seen in social media videos. <br><br>12:54 At about 19:04 the military have almost complete control of the central area where protesters were. <br><br>Protesters have run to the far left and are mostly moving towards Lekki. Soldiers take over vacated space. <br><br>(Vehicles with blinking lights are military). <br><br>12:57 At 19:06, we have 4 military vehicles in formation, pushing the protesters out of the toll gate area, with only one way to go - Lekki. <br><br>The vehicle top right ensures protesters dont cross to the side near Shoprite. <br><br>13:00 We are looking at 19:09 on the video. While a most of the protesters have run towards Lekki, a small group is huddled by the toll gate (lower centre), right where they were before.<br><br>We suspect this was the group where DJ Switch was.<br><br>Military vehicles now facing that crowd. <br><br>13:04 It is now 19:14 on the video. The military vehicles have surrounded the small crowd. One vehicle is high up Lekki Expressway (top right). This will be important later.<br><br>Also important to note vehicle lights are pointed away from the crowd. Theres still power at toll gate.<br><br>13:11 An important point in the video - 19:22. On the top right, a large dynamic light source is seen top right.<br><br>That is a fire, and the military vehicle is right beside it. Recall the vehicle up the highway.<br><br>The military was in control of the area when the fire started.<br><br>13:16 We have just seen the gun flares in the direction of the protesters - 19:23. <br><br>Protesters now running toward the lagoon side of the plaza.<br><br>Please note that nothing is certain from this video orientation and resolution. <br><br>13:21 The room is rather quiet. Its hard to believe we are watching what we obviously are. <br><br>19:23 At this point, the military is in control of the area. Theres power at the toll, but no security lights on. The camera is manually operated. <br><br>The fire up the road is growing.</blockquote><br><a href="https://twitter.com/EditiEffiong/status/1330075378543714308">https://twitter.com/EditiEffiong/status/1330075378543714308</a>
