Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, on Thursday, said he is yet to speak directly with President Muhammadu Buhari concerning the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate.
Nearly 48 hours after the shootings the President is yet to address Nigerians on the incident which led to no fewer than 12 people.
Sanwo-Olu in an interview on Thursday said he called Buhari twice on Wednesday, but he was at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
He said he called the Nigerian leader to inform him of the killings of #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, by the Nigerian Army on Tuesday but was told he was not available.
“I made calls to the President twice yesterday but was told he wasn’t in the office. The second time he was said to be at the FEC meeting; I haven’t spoken to him directly but I have reached the Chief of Staff to the President,” he said in an interview with Arise TV.
When asked to explain why CCTV at Lekki Toll Gate was removed before the dastardly act, he said: “The cameras removed were not security cameras, it is a laser camera for cars; it picks tags for cars and plate numbers; it is not a security camera; it is an infrared camera; security cameras are still available and that is what we are using for our own investigation.
“They did the removal because of curfew. As regards the light, LCC put off the light because of the curfew order issued by Lagos State Government. I have never spoken to the owner of the company ( Tinubu’s son), I am very certain their decision was purely a corporate decision.
“I will not stop to continue to apologize to Lagosians. Is it possible to make CCTV footage public; Sanwo-Olu agreed to make the phone call public.”
