Abiodun Owonikoko, SAN, counsel for the Lagos State Government, has proposed that the government offer additional security to anyone who may be vulnerable to the ramifications from the disclosure of the Lagos EndSARS panel report.

Owonikoko denied knowledge of any attack on one of the EndSARS demonstrators, Miss Kanyisochukwu Ibe, and the claimed threat to life by Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN, in an interview with on Monday, but stressed that such action must be condemned if genuine.

“I am not aware of any such thing, sir,” he answered. If this is the case, I condemn it in the strongest terms possible. I find it odd, though, that those who have strong feelings for the victims are the ones who are being threatened.

“The government must do everything in its ability to offer exceptional security cover and protection for anyone who may be vulnerable to the fallout from the panel report’s leaks from all sides.”

“People must also be encouraged to refrain from exacerbating the situation on social media. Abuse of the platform was a major contributor to the initial catastrophe. We should all take away some lessons from it in order to prevent inflaming the political situation.”
