Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the Nigeria’s governing party, APC, said he has probed the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu if he ordered soldiers to shoot at armless protesters at the Lekki tollgate Tuesday night.
He said he sought to know who ordered the shooting in case the governor didn’t.
Tinubu, during a visit to the governor at the State House in Marina on Saturday also berated the invasion and cruel looting of public and private assets in the state of late.
Addressing journalists after the meeting with the governor, Tinubu said he did not travel out of the country as reported by some sections of the media.
He told reporters that the purpose of his meeting with Sanwo-Olu was to ask him if he had ordered soldiers to attack #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate on Tuesday.

The former Lagos governor said he asked Sanwo-Olu “if he didn’t order the attack, who ordered the attack? That’s all I needed from him.”
Tinubu has come under fire in the last few days over the Lekki incident as rampaging hoodlums burnt down investment reportedly linked with him including a television station, a newspaper house as well as assets of the Lekki Concession Company, the managers of the 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.
Tinubu stressed the need for a thorough investigation into Tuesday night attack.
