It Is Not In The Spirit Of Justice To Keep Lekki Tollgate Shut - Segalink Advocates For Normalcy To Return

Segun Awosanya, better known as Segalink, the convener of EndSARS campaign and member of the Lagos state judicial panel, says it is not in the “spirit of justice” for the Lekki tollgate gate to remain shut after the panel’s forensic team are done with their investigation at the site.


On Saturday, Doris Okuwobi, a retired judge and chairperson of the panel, in her ruling, asked the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to repossess the Lekki tollgate, noting that insurers can commence assessment of the damage at the facility, renovate and resume its business.

Five members of the panel including Segalink supported the ruling for the repossession of the Lekki tollgate.

However, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa Adegboruwa, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), also a member of the panel, joined some members of the panel, especially the youth representatives, to give a dissenting opinion on the ruling after its sitting.

The development sparked outrage on the social media, especially on the microblogging platform, Twitter, as some Nigerians criticised Segalink for supporting the ruling.

Amid the criticisms, Segalink, in a series of tweets on Sunday, gave reasons he supported the ruling, noting that it is not logical to shut down the Lekki toll gate, even as the army and the police are not shut down amid the ongoing investigation.

He noted that since the panel’s forensic team have completed work at the site, there is no need to lock down the tollgate, adding that “those manipulating you presents you with someone to hate and you march on like zombies to throw tantrums”.

“It is futile making logical sense when emotions are running wild. Where in the world do you deploy sentiments & injustice to obtain justice? Is the panel an opinion panel or a judicial panel? Have you taken out time to read the ruling? Did this nullify the cases? Is this the end?” he said.

“Those manipulating you presents you with someone to hate and you march on like zombies to throw tantrums. How does granting access for assessment of damage & initiating repairs a vote against the people when the panel’s forensic team are done at the site? Why lock it down?

“How many scientists do you find staying perpetually by the microscope without leaving to work on his findings? Recall that people work in the establishment too? We all use that road. Imaging locking the whole road under claims of an ongoing investigation without the need to visit

“There are always other routes to ensure justice without becoming the demons we fight. We need not make life harder for others just to prove a point. Everyone is entitled to fairness, equity & presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Investigation is done, cases are ongoing.

“Imagine shutting down police and Army in the name of an ongoing investigation. This to me is not in the spirit of justice. Read the ruling and if it errs on the ground of Law, Justice and Equity then we can look into that. Thus, far there’s no such claim.
