The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has threatened to institute legal action against President Muhammadu Buhari government.

SERAP said it is suing Buhari to compel the arrest of soldiers and police officers involved in shooting EndSARS protesters at Lekki Tollgate in Lagos State.

In a series of tweets, the body urged the Buhari government to compel payment of reparation to victims.

Disclosing that it would file the suit on Wednesday, SERAP said the EndSARS Panel report would serve as part of its evidence.

According to SERAP: “BREAKING: We’re suing the Buhari administration to compel it to immediately arrest the soldiers and police responsible for the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki-Toll Gate and pay reparations to victims.

“Please indicate your interest to join the suit by stating your names.

“We’re filing the suit first thing tomorrow morning; so please indicate your interest

“We’re also following up with our petition dated 21 October 2020 to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court by forwarding today a copy of the report of Lagos #EndSARS Panel as additional information and evidence.”

In June 2020, soldiers and police officers had shot some EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate in Lagos State.

The incident had led to a widespread protest across the country.

A panel was later set up to probe the incident and it submitted its report yesterday.
