Lekki Killings: 10 Top Low Life Lies Nigerian Authorities Have Put Out

1. Sanwo-Olu said “forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history” whereas, he knew the Nigerian Army were at the scenes, shooting. This hinted that some people gave the Governor the suggestion or rather, the order leading to Lekki killings.

2. He further denied calling the Nigerian Army to the Toll Gate, saying he has no power to invite the troop, as he is just a Governor and not the President of the nation.
3.  Nigerian Army also denied being at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday 20th October, labelling all reports of its officials shooting as fake.

4. The Nigerian Army again said videos from the Lekki killings scene were photoshopped and unreal.
5. The Commander, 9 Brigade, Nigerian Army, Brig-Gen Musa Etsu-Ndagi, representing the Nigerian Army on the Lagos State Security Council, noted that Governor Sanwo-Olu was the one who called his attention to the shootings.

Also, Brigadier A.I Taiwo said he received an extraordinary order from the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen Tukur Buratai who ordered the deployment of soldiers undergoing training at Military schools for the Lekki exercise due to the shortage of troops, after lying about photoshop – oh, the Nigerian authorities do not rate the citizens.
9. Lai Mohammed took the Lekki Killing lies to another level professionally, noting that the scenario was bloodless, bodiless and a hoax. Meanwhile, the videos shows evidences of blood spills, deaths and injuries.
