Members of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry on SARS Related Abuses & Lekki Toll Gate Incident on Friday visited the Ikoyi Military Hospital to aid their investigation.

The chair of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi, led her team members and media to the hospital to find out whether corpses of protesters reportedly killed were dumped at its morgue.

Initially, soldiers manning the gate of the military hospital, did not allow the members of the panel to inspect the hospital.

The soldiers claimed that they were not aware of the visit.

They said it was against protocol visiting without prior notice to the hospital.

They therefore sent the panel members out of the premises.

The panel members were later allowed in and were taken round the facility by General A. I. Taiwo and the medical director of the hospital, Colonel S.G. Ogoh.

After the inspection of the empty hospital, the panel members were told that the hospital did not have a mortuary, and that it been under renovation for the past one year.
