The Commander 81 of the Military Intelligence Brigade, Brigadier-General AI Taiwo, has explained why the military initially denied its personnel where involved in the shooting Lekki shooting.
Recall that new hours after the shooting of EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on Tuesday, October 20, the Nigerian Army on Twitter denied the involvement of soldiers at the scene.
Taiwo while Testifying before the Lagos state Judicial panel this afternoon, said the military initially denied because it did not have available facts.
‘The first statement was born out of the fact that we did not have the facts available to us and the second was because nobody was sent to the Lekki tollgate to breakup any protest” he said
