The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has spoken about the Endsars protest that claimed lives at Lekki toll gate in Lagos. Sanwo-Olu during an interview on ARISE TV on Wednesday said he has learnt his lessons. Speaking further, he added that he wanted to get forensic analysis of what happened during the shooting before making utterances. Youths had held a serious grudge against the governor over his utterances and actions during the protest.
Many questioned who ordered the army to shoot at unarmed youths? Others asked who turned off the light at the tollgate? As a result of this anger and unanswered questiones, many youths have vowed not to vote for him in Saturday’s election. Reacting, the Govenror said he wanted to get verified information on what happened on October 20, 2022, when the Nigerian army opened fire on unarmed civilians instead of the social media posts.
He claimed he was the first among governors to visit the angry youths. Sanwo-Olu pleaded that everyone should drop the question of ‘who gave the order’ and engage in a role-play or put themselves in his situation. He added that it is not in his position and space to order the military to go to the Lekki tollgate just like in the case of what happened during the presidential election.
