Army Responsible For Lekki Toll Gate Shooting, Sanwo-Olu Insists

The governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has for the umpteenth time insisted that the Nigerian Army was responsible for tgr shooting at Lekki toll gate, Lagos. 

The governor said footage made available has shown that the Nigerian Army  carried out the shooting that occurred at Lekki toll gate in Lagos.

Recall that last Tuesday, armed men in army uniform opened fire on armless #EndSARS protesters, killing some in the process. Although the army had  since denied being responsible while the federal government said it would probe the tragic incident.

But while speaking with CNN on Monday, Sanwo-Olu said the CCTV footage would be available to the state judicial panel probing brutality of security operatives.

“We will be committed to a full investigation of what happened and people would be held accountable. They certainly would be held accountable. We would do everything possible to ensure that they are held accountable,” he said.

“People have claimed that their friends and family members have been killed. So, this Judicial Panel of Enquiry is meant to bring all of these stories to accountability; where we can make restitutions, where families can prove and identify officers that were responsible for this.

 “I am not the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces; I am Governor of a State. The report would be out and we would channel the report to all the relevant authorities in the state to ensure that every one that is found culpable is accountable for the act.”
