Lagos State Government says the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered an investigation into the shooting at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Soldiers had shot at unarmed #EndSARS protesters. An unconfirmed number of persons have been reported killed or injured.
In a statement issued by Lagos Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, he said Sanwo-Olu has advised the security agents not to arrest anyone on account of the curfew imposed across the state.
“There have been reports of shooting at the Lekki Toll Plaza, following the 24-hour curfew imposed on Lagos State to stop criminals who hid under the #EndSARS protests to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens,” the statement said.
“The State Government has ordered an investigation into the incident. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised the security agents not to arrest anyone on account of the curfew, which he urges residents to observe for the peaceful atmosphere we all cherish.
“He advises Lagosians to remain calm and not allow criminals, who have hijacked the noble protest of our gallant youths, to succeed in their evil plan of turning our dear state upside down.
“The Governor will do everything within his power to ensure that the lives of all Lagosians are protected at all times.”
