Lagos state Governor, has again spoken about the Lekki Toll Gate shooting, stating that the events came as a shock to him.
On the 20th of October 2020, military men shot at peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate plaza, and the state governor has now given more insight on what transpired that night.
Mr Sanwo-Olu who spoke on Arise TV interview on Thursday said “it was his wife and cabinet members that informed him about the shooting at Lekki toll gate”. He also said he never ordered that the billboard light should be put off.
“Nobody ordered the removal of cameras at the Lekki tollgate. The MD of LCC said because of the curfew, they made the decision to take out installations. The cameras you saw are not security or motion cameras, they are laser cameras for vehicles. The security cameras are still available and we are using them for our security investigations.”
According to him, the events that occurred came as a shock to him and he still can’t explain who gave orders to the military.
