‘There were casualties’ — Gbaja contradicts Sanwo-Olu on Lekki shooting

‘There were casualties’ — Gbaja contradicts Sanwo-Olu on Lekki shooting

Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, says there were casualties from the attack on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos on Tuesday.  

Soldiers opened fire on protesters who converged on the tollgate demanding an end to police brutality.  

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, initially claimed no life was lost. He later admitted the death of one person who was taken to Reddington hospital for treatment.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Gbajabiamila said it was clear that the gunfire left casualties, and this needs to be investigated. 

“Events in my home state Lagos, last night and up until this afternoon, have left my heart heavy and my spirit disturbed,” he tweeted. 

“After sixty years, our democracy should have grown beyond the point where conflicting visions of nationhood result in violence on the streets and blood on the ground.

“It is unavoidably and painfully clear that there were a number of casualties as a result of gunfire at the Lekki Toll Gate.
