Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, the Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, has said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu called on the Nigeria Army on Lekki Toll Gate #EndSARS protesters.

He stated this on Saturday while testifying at the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20, 2020.

According to General Taiwo, the #EndSARS protests plunged Lagos State into anarchy.

The soldier stated that the burning of police stations and looting of arms and ammunition; the killing of policemen, blockage of roads and extortion of money from innocent citizens by hoodlums was enough reason for the governor to invite the army.

Taiwo expressed that the scenes are reminiscent of the Liberian Civil War “when the fighters believed that once they consume the human body, they would be fortified.”

“It was these incidents that made the Governor of Lagos State ask for military intervention and in my opinion, that was the correct thing to do since the police had been overrun and policemen were fighting for their dear lives.”


  1. One thing I surely know is that truth must reveal one day and nothing will be able to cover it, wether we like it or not.

  2. Now, Who is fooling Who? Governor Sanwolu once said he doesn’t have power to invite the army to seen of the protest and this brig. Gen. Taiwo said he is the one who invited them to the seen. Who are we going to believe.

  3. Those who have hands in the killing of those innocent protesters won’t have peace of mind. Unless they seek for the forgiveness of those who they killed.

  4. This government is full of lies to the extent that the governor, the army and the government itself are lying, who else are we going to believe? Shame on them.

  5. This set of Government is the worst I have seen, in lying they are champions, insecurity they have A1.
    Don’t worry this is just the Genesis, by the time it will get to Revelation the truth must come out.
