Alhaji Taoreed Faronbi, otherwise known as Baba Alado, Popular land developer and speculator has denied allegations that he sponsored thugs to attack #EndSARS protesters in the Alausa area of Lagos State.
This was made known by Baba Alado himself in a telephone interview with newsmen today.
According to him, he was shocked to hear that he was trending on social media because of the allegations.
Baba Alado, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, said he had not been to Alausa in almost 15 years, adding that he had no reason to attack any protester.
He said, “They are just telling lies against me. I am telling you now that anyone they catch with a cutlass should face justice. I have no interest in Alausa. The police should shoot anyone that is caught disrupting protests. Why should I attack protesters? What interest do I have in the matter?
“I spent a lot of my time in America these days. I am a strong member of the APC. All they have been doing is to accuse me of land grabbing
Baba Alado said he has no idea who are behind the protest, adding that he is sure they are politicians.
“ I have no hand in the matter. I am not a policeman. So, if the government says they don’t want protesters, am I the one that would enforce such an order?”
