Lekki shooting: At last, Tinubu makes public appearance, tells Sanwo-Olu what to do



Tinubu

Former Governor of Lagos state and a Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu on Saturday visited Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Shortly after his visit, Tinubu declared, ““I didn’t go no where, I am a Lagosian, I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still the Jagaban…”

He however, commiserated with Sanwo-Olu over the mayhem that engulfed Lagos and demanded thorough investigation into Tuesday night attack at Lekki toll gate.

He said: “First, we have to segregate the calendar – those who suffered casualty before the protests from the hands of SARS. You have to separate that from those who suffered casualty due to what happened at the toll gate.

“For those who suffered casualty from SARS, the Commission of Inquiry that is already set up will unearth that and will make their recommendations. I trust the calibre and the character of the people there, they are independent. That is one.

“Those who suffered casualty during the gunshots need to answer some questions too. Even though we want to help, we still must extract information that will help the government to prepare in future and understand how and when to react because the governor, in particular, is a youth.

“As a youth himself, he (Sanwo-Olu) quickly went to Abuja with the 5/5. The government immediately put into action, dissolved the SARS and had to work through other recommended actions, the needs they demanded. Within a few days, he reported back to the public. That is responsive enough…”
