Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, says President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered a probe into the shootings of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate which happened on Tuesday.
He said this during an interview on Arise Television on Friday, October 24.
Dare said, “For sure the president has ordered an investigation, he had a national security meeting yesterday.
“I can tell you that this is already ongoing because the president wants to have all the facts which will absolutely be made public.
“It is important to get all the facts right before we go forward, in this case, it’s going to be difficult to hide these facts because we live in a multimedia world and we have pieces of evidence and corroboration and I think it is important to get the facts right.
“I think that’s the path the president has towed and I am sure that when the facts are made available, this president – because he has integrity – will level with the Nigerian people about what happened on Tuesday in Lekki,” Dare said.
Recall that a panel of the investigation had been set up against reported soldiers who opened live ammunition on the #EndSARS protesters on Tuesday night.
