#EndSARS: Whatever Revenue LCC Lost to Protests Is Not Public Affair -MD




The Managing Director, Lekki Concession Company, LCC, Mr. Abayomi Omomuwa, on Friday said the company's loss of revenue to #EndSARS protests at the Lekki Toll Plaza of Lagos is a matter to be only discussed within the organisation and its staff.
 
Omomuwa said this in response to cross-examination by a counsel for some #EndSARS protesters, Mr Adesina Ogunlana, before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged shooting and killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers on the night of October 20 at the Lekki toll plaza.
 
He told the panel that the tollgate was owned by private investors until 2014 when the Lagos State Government fully acquired it.
 
The LCC boss said he could not tell how much the company lost when the plaza was occupied by #EndSARS protesters in October.

He expressed indifference when asked whether he was happy about the occupation of the site by protesters leading to loss of revenue for the firm.

When asked by Ogunlana if the LCC lost revenue to the tollgate occupation by protesters, Omomuwa said, “I believe that is the business of the company, not something to discuss in public.”

Further cross-examination led Omomuwa to express that “It is obvious, when toll is not collected, revenue is lost?”

But when Ogunlana asked, “How much did the company lose?” Omomuwa replied, “I don’t know.”

Asked if he reported the occupation of the tollgate by the #EndSARS protesters to the Lagos State Government, Omomuwa said he does not report to the Lagos State Government, he only reports to the LCC Board of Directors.
