Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has declared Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu innocent on the killings of peaceful End SARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate days ago.
According to Kanu in a post on his microblogging site account on Wednesday, the Nigerian Army lied against the governor. He alleged that Fulanized President [Muhammadu Buhari] ordered the military personnel fire shots on the protesters and not Governor Sanwo-Olu.
Naija News understands that there has been a denial of who ordered the killing of the patriotic citizens who were only demanding for good governance and an end to police brutality at the Lekki Toll Gate, despite that some gunmen in military uniform were seen at the Lekki toll gate opening gunfire at peaceful protesters.
Lagos State government had earlier denied records of casualties at the Toll Gate, subsequently, the government acknowledge the death of two persons during the crisis.
Reacting to the incident on Wednesday (today), the IPOB leader took to his Twitter account to described the Army’s claim as false. According to him, governor Sanwo-Olu would not have ordered the shooting as he was not the head of Army.
“Nobody should believe @HQNigerianArmy’s claim that it was @jidesanwoolu that ordered for soldiers to be brought to #Lekki,” Kanu tweeted.
He added, “It’s a brazen LIE. Since when did Governors become Army Commanders. #LekkiMassacre was ordered by the Fulanized @NGRPresident and executed by a Fulanized Army.”
