BREAKING: Sanwo-Olu Pays visit to victims of tollgate shooting in hospitals
Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has attributed the shooting of Lekki Protesters to ‘forces beyond control’.
In series of tweets early Wednesday, he said: “This is the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history, but we will face it and come out stronger.
“I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki. It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.
“There are currently 10 patients at the Gen Hospital, 11 at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care.
“3 patients have been discharged & we will continue to monitor and ensure all patients get the best care.”
Sanwo-olu noted he would work with the Federal Government to get to the roots of the shooting.
“As the Governor of our state, I recognize the buck stops at my table and I will work with the FG to get to the root of this unfortunate incident and stabilise all security operations to protect the lives and livelihood of our residents. I will give a state broadcast in the morning.”
