The Nigerian Army has said that the Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was misinformed on the number of casualties at Lekki Tollgate where #EndSARS protesters gathered, on October 20, insisting that no one was killed, at the protest ground.

Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo, who was representing the Nigerian Army at the ongoing #EndSARS Lagos Panel of inquiry made the disclosure today, Vanguard reports.

Contradicting the state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who claimed that two persons died as a result of the attack, General Taiwo said that the two casualties were not at the protest scene.

“On 20th October, 2020, at about 6.30 pm, while we tried to speak with the protesters and negotiate with them, they pelted stones at us and we had to fire blank bullets at protesters.”

According to General Taiwo, most of the pictures making the rounds were not taken on the said date.

“Any picture that you (lawyers) want to present here must be submitted to forensic test.

“No protester sustained injury nor died. The two people Governor Sanwo-Olu mentioned did not die at the scene; one died at Admiralty Way, which is three kilometre away from the Lekki Tollgate.

“The second person was shot at Yaba,” General Taiwo said.

When he asked if he saw news making the rounds from foreign media houses, Gen Taiwo said he saw one from BBC and CNN but did not see anyone from Al Jazeera because “I was sleeping on the street every night, making sure the place is safe.

“Most of the videos in play have been manipulated,” Gen Taiwo said.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
Excellent Blog!

Hello there! This article could not be written much better!
Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
He constantly kept preaching about this. I am going to forward
this article to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a
very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

I think everything published made a great deal of sense.
But, consider this, suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
I ain’t saying your content isn’t good, but what if you added a title
to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Lekki Shooting:
Sanwo-Olu Was Misinformed About Casualties, Nobody Died – Army Insist – Insidenaija
is kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s front page
and watch how they create article headlines to grab
people to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people
excited about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts
a little bit more interesting.

I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your site.
It appears as though some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please
comment and let me know if this is happening to
them too? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
Thanks

You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this

It kind of feels too complex and extremely vast for me. I
am looking ahead in your subsequent post, I’ll

I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across

The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I’m very happy I came across this in my search for
something concerning this.
