How Nigeria’s minister, Fashola found a hidden camera at scene of Lekki shooting
Nigeria’s minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola on Sunday reportedly found a camera at the scene of the shooting in the Lekki area of Lagos state.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the works minister found the device while on tour of the place where #EndSARS protesters demonstrated for 13 days before they were forcefully dispersed.
Recall that men in army uniform invaded the Lekki toll gate last Tuesday where the unarmed protesters were opened fire on them.
After the tragic incident, there has been a controversy over the number of those killed and the persons who sustained injuries.
Ministers and governors from the south-west on Sunday made an on-the-spot assessment of some of the places vandalised during the violence that trailed the #EndSARS protest.
The former governor of Lagos, Fashola found the camera during the visit which he said must have been planned by “some subversive elements”.
The minister reportedly picked up the device with a handkerchief and handed it over to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos.
“I think this will help with the ongoing investigations into the shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate. It requires forensic analysis and could be used in the investigations to unravel the mystery surrounding the shootings at the Toll Gate, I believe,” he was quoted to have said.
Fashola governed Lagos between 2007 and 2015. President Muhammadu Buhari appointed him a minister when he finished his two terms as governor and he was reappointed in 2019.
