Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that the Lagos State Government will ensure that anyone found culpable in last Tuesday’s shooting at the Lekki Toll Plaza will be held accountable for their actions.

Sanwo-Olu stated this while speaking in an interview with CNN’s Becky Anderson, he said; “We will be committed to a full investigation of what happened and people would be held accountable. They certainly would be held accountable. We would do everything possible to ensure that they are held accountable.

“People have claimed that their friends and family members have been killed. So, this Judicial Panel of Enquiry is meant to bring all of these stories to accountability; where we can make restitution, where families can prove and identify officers that were responsible for this.

“I am not the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, I am Governor of a State. The report would be out and we would channel the report to all the relevant authorities in the state to ensure that every one that is found culpable is accountable for the act.”

“There are no international pressures whatsoever. These are genuine protesters that we all believe and we all have knowledge about. I was the first governor among governors, with due respect to all my other colleagues, who came out to meet with them, who started from the front. I carried the EndSARS flags with them. I met with them twice and we all had the rally together and worked together,” he said.

    Go and deceive the woods and not us, we are wise now

  2. Mr sanwo-olu you are lying I swear… you already know people behind this… you just want to prolong this case so that Nigeria can forget. What I only believe is that if you lie to Nigeria or Lagos State…. you will not escape God punishment.

  3. Mr. Governor Anyone found responsible of what if I may ask please? Hope you meant anyone responsible for the killing of the peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and not the burning of the toll gate.

  4. There are many promises that you people have made but to no avail, what I know very well that matter most is that if those people couldn’t get justice here they will surely get it hereafter.

  5. You should have done the needful or be proactive in all your dealings before it always getting out of hands, it only God that can revenge for them.

    1. Even if you don’t have the power to punish the person no problem there’s one person who is above every power which Almighty God, take it or leave it they surely be punished for it.
