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.
The Nation reports that 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 after the October 20 shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate.
The Army has however denied any wrongdoing and accusations that it shot and killed unarmed protesters.
