Lekki Tollgate Shooting: Camera Stopped Working Around 8pm – LCC
The Lekki Concession Company, had on Tuesday revealed that the surveillance camera at the Lekki toll gate stopped working at 8pm on October 20.
October 20 was the day soldiers allegedly shot at End SARS protesters in Lekki toll gate in Lagos State.
The managing director of LCC, Abayomi Omomuwa, disclosed this while appearing at the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government to probe the Lekki shootings, as well as complaints of human rights abuses against members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
He further stated that cameras that were removed before the incident were plate number recognition cameras.
Omomuwa added that other surveillance camera, a pan–tilt–zoom camera (PTZ camera) also exists and is still intact.
“We never, ever tampered with the surveillance camera until about 8pm, when it was tampered with and stopped recording,” Omomuwa added.
He noted that three surveillance cameras: at the Lekki toll gate, one at Ikoyi and another at Chevron. The cameras are linked via network, controlled from Chevron.
Omomuwa noted they did not activate audio recording, as the cameras are used for traffic not security.
