Lagos To Probe Lekki Tollgate Shooting

The Lagos State government on Tuesday  said it would probe reports of shootings at the Lekki Toll plaza  which attended the 24-hour curfew levied on Lagosians to curb growing criminalities masquerading as #ENDSARS protests.

The alleged shooting by suspected security agents was said to left many injured both from gunshots and ensuing stampede.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, made this known in series of tweets on Tuesday evening.

According to him, the government has ordered investigation into the incident.

He added Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised security agents not to arrest anyone as a result of the curfew.

“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised the security agents not to arrest anyone on account of the curfew, which he urges residents to observe for the peaceful atmosphere we all cherish.

“He advises Lagosians to remain calm and not allow criminals, who have hijacked the noble protest of our gallant youths, to succeed in their evil plan of turning our dear State upside down.

“The Governor will do everything within his power to ensure that the lives of all Lagosians are protected at all times,” he said.
