Tinubu commiserates with Lagosians over Lekki toll gate shooting

All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has commiserated with Lagosians over the Lekki toll plaza shooting incident in protests to end operations of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).

Tinubu made a statement when he visited the Governor of Lagos State Babajide Sanwo-Olu

He said: “We have to separate those who suffered brutality in the hands of some SARS officers before the protests from those who suffered casualties due to shootings at the Toll Gate. For those who suffered from SARS they should approach the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and present their case to the panel.”

“The panel is independent and I trust the caliber and character of the people there.”

“He (Sanwo-Olu) quickly went to Abuja with the five for five and the government immediately went into action.”

“We saw on television that he delivered the message to Mr. President. The President didn’t say no. The President gave him appointment within a few hours. That is responsive enough for people to go to town but where we are we getting the looting, the carnage, the burning and invasion of our Police stations and stealing of arms and maiming the innocent. It is handshake beyond the elbow,”

Asked if he left Lagos after the shootings, he said, “I didn’t go nowhere; I am a Lagosian. And I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos State and I am still the Jagaban. Whatever they think; fake news is all over the place. They said my son, Seyi was kidnapped. He is here (Tinubu pointed at his son). It is all a joke.”
