I can only control my personal security guards - Tinubu speaks on Lekki toll gate shooting

Former Governor of Lagos state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Bola Tinubu has commented on the Lekki toll gate shooting which left many dead and others injured. 

 

The Lagos politician who was interviewed via telephone by a Channels TV reporter Olu Philips, expressed shock over the shooting and also revealed that he is ready to complain to the highest authorities. 

 

Tinubu denied ordering the shooting and also stated that he can only control his security guard. He again reiterated that he will never be part of any group that uses live ammunition against protesters. 

 

Insisting that he has always been an activist, the APC Chieftain expressed sympathy for the victims of the incident and advised the federal government to “fish out whoever gave the order (for the shooting) and put them on trial”. He also recalled how he was falsely accused of being behind #EndSARS protests. 

 

Tinubu who noted that he doesn't believe that Buhari ordered the shooting, appealed for calm over the incident. He also denied having a stake in the Lekki toll gate or suffering a loss due to the continous blockage of the area by #EndSARS protesters.
