Lekki shootings: Why camera was switched off, toll gate light put off- Sanwo-Olu [VIDEO]


The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has opened up on why the camera was removed and the light at the Lekki tollgate was put off before the attack.

The Bigbuzztv recalls that Sanwo-Olu suspended all government activities for 72 hours in view of growing violence in the state.

The governor made this known on Wednesday in a live broadcast.

On why toll gate lights were put off before #EndSARS protesters were shot at, Sanwo-Olu in an interview with Arise TV on Thursday morning said: “I called the managing director of LCC when I saw the picture of the camera being removed. What he said to me was that when the curfew was announced they took a decision that they would take out the camera. The camera that you saw is not a security camera; it is not a motion camera. It is a laser camera for vehicles. When you approach the toll plaza; you would remember that there is usually a camera at the level of your car. It is not a security camera, security cameras are still available.

It has some of the footages we will use for our own investigations.Security cameras are installed on top of the tower and they are still there.

“The company said they put off the light because of the curfew that the state government had put in place. That was what they said.I have never spoken to the owner of that business at least in the last one week”.
