Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu have paid a visit to protesters who were injured during last night shooting at the famous Lekki tollgate in the state.
With Lagos State being the most populated state in the country, youths
have been protesting for the past few days but things took a new turn last night when
protesters were being shot at by some men alleged to be from the Nigerian Army.
This event happened just hours after protesters have defied the 4pm curfew
ordered by the Governor, a curfew that was later moved to 9pm in the state.
CCTV cameras at the tollgate was reported to have been switched off before the
shooting started as street light were also switch off, a move that have raised
eyebrows across the country.
Sanwo-Olu who denied having a hand in the killings have now paid a visit to
those who were injured during the shootout in the hospital.
According of the Governor, his administration will pay the hospital bills of
all protesters who have been killed as he noted that the earlier curfew placed on
citizens was not meant to harm them.
Sanwo-Olu added that he will be addressing the whole state in the next
few hours as he tends to clear air on some pending issues in the country.
