Many Nigerians have expressed dissatisfaction over the oath of secrecy administered on members of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Lekki Shooting: Outrage As Governor Sanwo-Olu Asks Lagos Panel Members To Sign Oath Of Secrecy 1

The panel which includes two Nigerian youths – Rinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi – is to investigate the shooting of unarmed #EndSARS protesters by Nigerian soldiers at the Lekki toll plaza on Tuesday night, October 20, 2020.

The panel is also to probe alleged extrajudicial killings perpetrated by operatives of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police Force.

Ahead of the resumption of the panel’s sitting today, members of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Enquiry were allegedly made to sign an oath of secrecy.

The oath of secrecy administered on panel members reads in part, “I solemnly swear/affirm that I will not directly or indirectly communicate or reveal any matter to any person which shall be brought under my consideration or shall come to my knowledge in the discharge of my official duties, except as may be required for the discharge of my official duties or as may be officially permitted by the governor. So help me God/Allah.”

The oath given to the panel to sign has been leaked on the social media and many Nigerians are insisting that details of hearings must be made public.

See some of the reactions on Twitter below:

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Sanwo-Olu had earlier vowed that he would do everything within his power to ensure that those found culpableof the Lekki shooting were punished.
