The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, says #EndSARS protesters killed at the Lekki toll gate area of Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial city, “have questions to answer.”
Naija News had reported earlier that men suspected to soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening, October 20, killing #EndSARS protesters in the process.
Days after the Lekki toll gate massacre, Tinubu paid a visit to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, at the State House in Marina on Saturday, October 24, where he said those who were shot at the Lekki toll gate have questions to answer.
While addressing journalists after the meeting with the governor, Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, 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.
