The Nigerian Army has finally reacted to the shootings in Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday night as revealed in a video where soldiers were seen shooting at protesters of the #EndSARS campaign.
Reacting to the video that has since gone viral, Director of Information, Nigerian Defence Headquarters, Maj. Gen. John Eneche, said; “The issue is not an operation that I can respond to, but I can tell you that it is an allegation, for now; so let us not set the cart before the horse.”
“If the matter was still open-ended, I would have had a response for you but it is no longer open-ended, because immediately, not even up to five hours before midnight, the Governor of Lagos set up an inquiry. So, whatever we say now will not be fair to the commission.”
“So these operations are still standing and running and I am aware that the state governments are using them in all these capacities, that is internal security.”
“The level we are now is internal security and that is why the police proactively came out and then deployed all their force package that are necessary to handle the violence.”
