Those who are casualties during the shooting at Lekki need to answer some questions too – Tinubu
All Progressives Congress, APC chieftain, Bola Tinubu, has reacted to the looting of public and private assets in the state as well as the Lekki tollgate shooting.
Addressing journalists after a meeting with the governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Tinubu noted that the purpose of his meeting with Sanwo-Olu was to ask him if he had ordered soldiers to attack #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate on Tuesday.
The former Lagos governor said he asked Sanwo-Olu “if he didn’t order the attack, who ordered the attack? That’s all I needed from him.”
According to him, those who are casualties during the shooting at Lekki need to answer some questions too.
Tinubu stressed the need for a thorough investigation into Tuesday night attack.
He said, “First, we have to segregate the calendar – those who suffered casualty before the protests from the hands of SARS. You have to separate that from those who suffered casualty due to what happened at the toll gate”.
“For those who suffered casualty from SARS, the Commission of Inquiry that is already set up will unearth that and will make their recommendations. I trust the calibre and the character of the people there, they are independent. That is one.
“Those who suffered casualty during the gunshots need to answer some questions too. Even though we want to help, we still must extract information that will help the government to prepare in future and understand how and when to react because the governor, in particular, is a youth”, he said.
