BREAKING: Sanwo-Olu was misinformed on Lekki shooting, says army

Commander of the 81 division of the Nigerian Army, Ahmed Taiwo has disclosed that the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu was misinformed about the incident at Lekki tollgate.

This disclosure was made by the commander on Saturday while addressing the judicial panel set up to probe the incident.

Taiwo said it is not correct to say anyone died as a result of the shooting at the tollgate.

Recall that Babajide Sanwo-Olu had said no one died from the incident when he featured in ARISE TV one day after the shooting at the tollgate.

But hours later, he tweeted that he had received information about the death of one person.

“Information reaching us now is that a life was lost at Reddington Hospital due to blunt force trauma to the head. It is an unfortunate and very sad loss. This is an isolated case. We are still investigating if he was a protester,” he posted on his Twitter handle.

Barely 24 hours after, Sanwo-Olu said two deaths had been confirmed among the protesters in Lekki.

But while being cross examined at the panel by Olumide Fusika, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Taiwo said  no one died from the incident.

When the lawyer told him about Sanwo-Olu’s position on the incident, Taiwo simply said: “The governor was misinformed.”
