The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has just revealed that two deaths were recorded in the Lekki shooting during an interview with CNN. This is coming after the Governor had made a broadcast stating that no fatality was recorded.
According to him, protesters were only injured and taken for treatment. In the recent interview with CNN’s Becky Anderson, the Governor has now stated that two deaths were recorded.
“Two dead bodies. That’s what we’ve seen from all the morgues, that’s what we’ve seen going to hospitals, that’s what we’ve seen as records. What has happened is that there have been so many footages that people have shown but we have not seen dead bodies, we have not seen relatives, we have not seen anybody coming up to say indeed I am a father or mother to someone and I cannot find the person. Nobody has come .
I have been round and there is no splash of blood anywhere there.”
He also claims that no family of the deceased persons have come to make any complaints on there loved one’s who died.
When asked if the military men who opened fire on the protesters would be held accountable, Sanwo-Olu had this to say
“I am not the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces; I am Governor of a State. The report would be out and we would channel the report to all the relevant authorities in the state to ensure that every one that is found culpable is accountable for the act.” he said
