The Nigerian Army has said that most of the businesses looted or destroyed in Lekki, Ajah, Sangotedo and nearby places were owned by people of Igbo extraction.
Brigadier-General Ahmed Ibrahim Taiwo stated this in his testimony at the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and other matters.
The Army is testifying following its invitation by the panel in the wake of the October 20 shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Recall that the #EndSARS, a campaign to end police brutality in Nigeria was later hijacked by hoodlums who went berserk looting and destroying both public and private properties.
Following the development, various state governments have indicated interest to compensate owners of looted businesses.
