During the visit, Omomuwa told the panel that the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras mounted on a mast at the toll gate area were working during the shootings.
However, he noted that though the footage of the happenings of 20 10 20 had been captured by the CCTV, it is currently not working due to damage caused by hoodlums during the carnage of Oct. 21.
On the panel’s return to the venue of its proceedings, Justice Okuwobi, said the panel had made observations and had asked questions at the scene.
She said that subsequent proceedings could not continue because the Managing Director of the LCC had no legal representation.
She also noted that the panel had not admitted the Oct. 20 footage as evidence and when it is admitted in evidence, it will be played at the proceedings.
Finally, the proceedings were adjourned until Nov. 3 for the testimony to be given by the MD of the LCC.
