Tailgate Lock

The tailgate lock is locked and the key will not unlock the tailgate. How do I solve this problem?

What is the best way to access the inside of the tailgate? Remember... The tailgate is closed and is locked and cannot be opened.

There are screws on the inside of the locking mechanism itself accessible from inside the jeep.
