The Nigerian Bar Association and some Senior Advocates of
Nigeria has criticized the response of the Minister of
Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, over his comment
on the leaked panel report of the Lagos State judicial panel of
inquiry on restitution for victims of SARS-related abuses.


Recall that Mohammed at a press conference in Abuja on
Tuesday described the leaked report as one laced with
discrepancies and inconsistencies. He tagged it unverified
fake news.
The Nigerian Bar Association said the government had not
been open-minded about learning the truth of what happened
at the Lekki toll gate. The NBA publicity secretary, Dr Rapulu
Nduka said this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja.
According to Nduka, Mohammed has always given the
impression that nothing happened at the toll gate.
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ifedayo Adedipe, SAN, in an
interview tagged the minister’s response as premature.
According to Adedipe, the comment of the minister is insulting
to the ‘honorable men and women who sat on the panel.
