AAC Condemns Lagos State Government over Leaked Memo on #ENDSARS Mass Burial
The African Action Congress (AAC) has criticized the Lagos State government for a leaked memo revealing plans to bury victims of the #ENDSARS protests. The party calls for accountability and justice for the victims, demanding the release of all detainees and the implementation of the Justice Doris Okwuobi panel's recommendations.

The African Action Congress (AAC) has taken the Lagos State government to task over a leaked memo that disclosed the alleged plan to bury multiple victims of the #ENDSARS protests. The party, through its spokesperson, Osatohamhen Ebhohon, condemned the actions of the Lagos State government and its accomplices in the brutal #ENDSARS Lekki massacre.

The leaked memo, authenticated by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Olusegun Ogboye, has brought to light the gross human rights violations and state-sponsored violence that occurred during the #ENDSARS protests. It exposes the Lagos State government's involvement in commissioning a private firm, Messrs Tos Funeral Ltd, to bury 103 bodies of the victims. The cost of this mass burial amounted to N61,285,000.

These revelations raise serious questions about the government's accountability for the killings and its efforts to suppress the truth from the public. The AAC insists that those responsible for the atrocities, including ex-President Buhari, Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, General Omata of the Nigerian Army, and CSP Raji of Maroko police station, should face the full wrath of the law.

The AAC is deeply concerned and disappointed by the attempt to cover up the #ENDSARS massacre. Despite the Justice Doris Okwuobi panel's damning report that found the Lagos State government culpable, the government continues to deny its involvement and manipulate the narrative. The evidence presented during the panel's proceedings implicates the Lagos State government in these heinous acts, with confessions from top military officials and testimonies from key witnesses.

The AAC demands justice for all the victims of the #ENDSARS protests and the immediate release of all detainees. The Justice Doris Okwuobi panel recommended compensation for the victims and the unconditional release of all #ENDSARS detainees. The AAC calls on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to adhere to these recommendations and take decisive action in ensuring justice is served.

The failure of the government to do so will undoubtedly provoke mass resistance from the people, who will not tolerate the mockery of the victims and the continued denial of their rights. The AAC stands with the people of Lagos and Nigeria in demanding accountability, justice, and an end to state-sponsored violence. It urges everyone to join the call for action until justice is served.
