The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reacted to the position of the Army on the Lekki toll gate shooting in Lagos State.

Sanwo-Olu said there was nothing wrong in inviting the military to intervene in the End SARS crisis at Lekki toll gate.

He insisted that the military can be asked to intervene in order to quell riots if it sees the need for such.

The governor stated this through his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile.

Speaking with journalists on Tuesday night, Akosile said the statement from the military command made it even clear that its men did not shoot at anybody and what they did followed strictly the rule of engagement.

He said: “The angle should actually be that the military has come out to deny that they shot at anybody. There has been the accusation saying that they shot, they killed.

“If you read that statement very well, the Army is saying that they did not shoot at civilians and that what they did followed strictly the rule of engagement.

“And then, if you read the statement very well, the angle of Lagos State government, you understand. There is nothing wrong to say, lawlessness, anarchy has come and the military should be called to intervene. There is nothing wrong there, there is nothing wrong there.”
