“We never ever tempered with the surveillance camera until about 8 pm, when it was tampered with and stopped recording, the network was interfered with which stopped the recording”.
” The cameras that were removed at the Lekki toll gate were plate numbers recognition cameras, they identify the vehicle and vehicle type,”
According to him, he cannot confirm the number of casualties neither can he speak of the shell cases found at the Lekki toll gate.
” We usually put the light on at about 7:30 pm, our people left the location at 4 pm, everyone was asked to go after the curfew was declared”
