In the aftermath of Tuesday night’s tragic shooting of unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate, the state governor Babajide Sanwoolu has been visiting the victims of the incidents in different hospitals.
In a series of tweets, he also explained why it took him this long to make a statement on the incident.
“This is the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history, but we will face it and come out stronger.
“I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki .
“It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.
“There are currently 10 patients at the Gen Hospital, 11 at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care.
“3 patients have been discharged & we will continue to monitor and ensure all patients get the best care.”
