The Nigerian Army has said that most of the businesses looted and destroyed in Lekki, Ajah, Sangotedo and nearby places were owned by people of Igbo extraction.
Brig. Gen. 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 shooting and killing of protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.
The Army has denied accusations that it shot and killed unarmed protesters that day but were there to main order following directives of the governor.
