Sanwo-Olu Didn’t Order Lekki Shooting, Army Lied – Nnamdi Kanu
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday, faulted claims by the Army that Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu invited them to intervene at the Lekki toll gate, amid the End SARS protest.
Kanu claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the soldiers to kill the protesters, not Sanwo-Olu.
However, the IPOB leader described the Army’s claim as false.
In a tweet, Kanu insisted that the governor was not the head of the Army.
He tweeted: “Nobody should believe @HQNigerianArmy’s claim that it was @jidesanwoolu that ordered for soldiers to be brought to #Lekki.
“It’s a brazen LIE. Since when did Governors become Army Commanders. #LekkiMassacre was ordered by the Fulanized @NGRPresident and executed by a Fulanized Army.”
Recall that gunmen in military uniform had last week Tuesday stormed the Lekki toll gate and opened fire at peaceful protesters which killed some of the protesters and injured some during the crisis.
However, following the backlash, the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army disclosed that they stormed Lekki toll gate on the order of Sanwo-Olu. However, they were present at the scene of the protest but did not kill anybody.
