#LekkiMassacre: Victims of Lekki Shooting Have Some Questions to Answer — Tinubu
Four days after soldiers shot at peaceful protesters in Lekki, Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says the victims of the incident need to answer some questions.
Soldiers opened gunfire on unarmed protesters at Lekki toll gate, one of the key #EndSARS protest sites in Lagos, on Tuesday, but the casualty level remains uncertain.
Reacting to the incident on Saturday, October 24, 2020, at the Lagos State Government House, Marina, Tinubu said the casualties of the shooting need to answer some questions that will help the Lagos State Government to understand how to react.
Tinubu said, “Those who suffered casualty during the gunshots need to answer some questions too. How are they there? How long were they there? What types of characters were they, even though we want to help, we still must extract information to help the government to understand how and when to react.”
Explaining the reason why he visited Gov Babajide Sanwo-Olu Tinubu said he was there to sympathise with him and the victims of the Lekki shooting.
He also said he wished to seek Sanwo-Olu’s permission to visit some of the victims if they are still at the hospital and take responsibility for payment.
