Tinubu, Son Visit Governor Sanwo - Olu

From Godwin Akomah, Lagos

All Progressives Congress(APC) National leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Saturday October paid a visit to Governor Babajide Sanwoolu ostensibly on matters relating to the recent protest and unrest in the State.

The visit puts a lie to the campaign of falsehood making the rounds that he ran to France in the wake of the protest, largecale destruction of public and private properties as well as loss of lives that trailed EndSARS campaign in Lagos.

 Tinubu who lamented the invasion and wanton looting of public and private assets in the state, condoled with  Governor Sanwo-Olu at the State House in Marina over the incident.

Addressing reporters after the meeting with the governor, Tinubu said he did not travel out of the country as reported by some sections of the media 

He told reporters that the purpose of his meeting with Sanwo-Olu was to ask him if he had ordered soldiers to attack #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate on Tuesday.

The former Lagos governor said he asked Sanwo-Olu “if he didn’t order the attack, who ordered the attack? That’s all I needed from him.”

Tinubu has come under fire following  in the Lekki incident as hoodlums savagely attack investments reportedly linked with him including a television station, a newspaper house as well as assets of the Lekki Concession Company, the managers of the toll gate.

He gave insight into his reason for meeting Sanwo - Olu and called for a thorough investigation into the  Tuesday Tollgate shooting.

“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."
