Adegboruwa, Rinu Absent As Lagos Judicial Panel Resumes Sitting

Oluwaseye Ogunsanya February 16, 2021 7


Background

After failing to sit on Saturday, the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for victims of SARS and other related matters commenced its sitting today without two of its members.

Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebunolu Adegboruwa, who was absent had already hinted last weekend that he was considering his continued participation at the panel.

A youth representative on the panel, Rinuola Oduala, had also tweeted her decision to stop further participation in the panel.

With the absence of the two, seven other members of the panel sat to listen to 10 petitions listed for hearing.

While granting a further adjournment for the adoption of final addresses in the first petition of Francis Idum VS FSARS, the Chairman of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi warned lawyers to file their documents timeously. She said the panel had very little time left for its assignment and could not afford to be too liberal or magnanimous in granting adjournments when counsel fail to do what is expected of them.

In the second petition, involving late Rasheed Kareem, two witnesses testified on behalf of the family, the brother of the deceased, Olalekan Bankole whose testimony was closely followed by that of Imam Taofeek, who described himself as the best friend of the deceased.

The panel watched a video tendered in evidence by the petitioners of how the late Rasheed was allegedly shot by policemen said to be from the Area C police station in Surulere on October 3, 2020.
