The four members who disparaged the forensic report also rejected the application by the Lekki Concession Company, operator of the Lekki tollgate, to take ownership of the facility, which had been shut down since the probe of the shootings commenced

The four members who rejected the forensic report are the two representatives of the civil society – Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN) and Ms. Patience Udoh; as well as the two youth representatives on the panel – Rinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi
