The retired judge noted that it was necessary for the army representative to watch the footage so as to be abreast with the information already provided to the panel by LCC.

LCC boss, Omomuwansa had told the panel during his testimony that his company’s cameras were initially not tampered with until around 8 pm when they stopped recording due mostly to network issues.

He also pointed out that the power outage on the night of the shooting was because its staff were withdrawn from office locations after the announcement of the curfew by the Lagos State Government, so they could not switch on backup generators when power was interrupted.
