The ECOWAS Court of Justice in Abuja has summoned President Muhammadu Buhari’s government over Lekki Massacre.

Notifying the Federal government over a suit filed by filed by Patrick Eholor, the ECOWAS court gave FG 30 days file for defence or be ready to be served judgement in their absence.

Speaking on the pending suit, Chief Patrick Eholor, legal Representative, Samuel Ihensekhien jnr stated that if the Lagos State Government and FG think that Lagos State #endsars panel report will be discarded and thrown to the dust bin, they better have a rethink in this regard, as the case is just a prelude and first step in getting reparation for victims of the lekki toll gate killings.

He also said that by January 2022, when the ECOWAS court sits on the case, the legal team will make sure the case is pursued to its logical conclusion.

Recall that a panel of inquiry found the Nigerian military to be culpable in the shooting and killing of unarmed citizens protesting against police brutality in the commercial capital of Lagos in October last year.

In its report, which was leaked just hours after it was submitted to the Lagos state government, the panel found that there had been 48 casualties, including 11 people killed, and four people missing, during what it described as a “massacre”.
