Lekki Shooting: ‘We Have Records Of Two Deaths’ – Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Tells CNN

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, told CNN’s Becky Anderson in a live interview on Sunday that there were only two deaths recorded in the shooting incident that occurred at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday, October 20.

According to Sawno-Olu, no member of any family have come out to complained about the death of a member neither was any blood stains at the scene where the massacre occurred.

He said,

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 admitted that CCTV footage showed clearly that it was the military officers that shot at them and when he was asked whether their culprits will be held accountable for the attack Sanwo Olu responded,

”They certainly would…we will do everything to ensure they are held accountable”

She asked him to go straight forward and give him absolute responses and he said,

“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
