Governor Sanwo-Olu denies ordering the killing of #EndSARS protesters as he visits victims of Lekki Toll Gate Shooting

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had denied ordering the killing of #EndSARS protesters as he visited some victims of Lekki toll gate shooting. Sharing photos from his visit to the hospitals where some victims of the shootings are being treated, the Lagos state Governor described it as "toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make notes in our history". He insisted that the decision to impose curfew was borne out of concern for innocent protesters and the entire citizenry, as it will be foolhardy for a leader to try to protect his citizens and still turn around to put their lives at risk. Sanwo-Olu who disclosed that this is not time to trade blames, further disclosed that there are 10 patients at the General Hospital in Lagos Island, 11 at Reddington hospital and 4 at Vedic hospital with mild to moderate levels of injuries. He further revealed that while 2 are receiving intensive medical care, 3 patients have been discharged. He also promised to take care of the medical bills of victims of the shootings. He wrote; This may be the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make notes in our history, but we will face it. As a Father and Governor, I watched in anguish the unacceptable event that occurred last night at the Lekki tollgate. The decision to impose curfew was borne out of concern for innocent protesters and the entire citizenry of our dear state. It will be foolhardy for a leader to try to protect his citizens and still turn around to put their lives at risk. However, this is not the time to trade blames. We will take it in our stride and move. I paid a visit to all the victims of the unfortunate shooting incident at the various hospitals where they are being urgently attended to. There are currently 10 patients at the General Hospital in Lagos Island, 11 at Reddington hospital and 4 at Vedic hospital with mild to moderate levels of injuries, while 2 are receiving intensive medical care. And 3 patients have been discharged. I implored the attending doctors to give them the best care, while we cover all their medical bills. We are working with the Federal Govt to harmonize and stabilize all security operations while prioritizing the lives of the residents we swore to protect and serve. I would also be giving a statewide address in a few hours. We will come out stronger.
