Loatsad Promomedia has issued a statement clearing up rumours that it played a role in the attack on #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday evening.

The media company owned by Seyi Tinubu, son of Popular Lagos politician/APC national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, disclosed that they shut down their billboard at the Lekki Toll gate based on an curfew order put in place by the state governor, Baba-jide Sanwoolu.

The statement read in full:

“When we started in 2014, we had a plan to change the perception of African start-ups in the global space. We believed as Africans, we could create something great and we set out with a N4m loan from a bank and we started trading, going from door to door begging for work and relentlessly grew the business employing and empowering over 200 Nigerians today directly or indirectly. We have supported many upcoming businesses, artists, people in need as giving back to our community has always been our passion (all this can be verified).”

“All of our achievements thus far have come the from hard work, sweat and determination of our work force and everything Loatsad has been doing has been open, all taxes are remitted and payments to agencies and regulatory bodies have been timely, so we can be proud to say we are contributing the growth of the industry and Nation.”

“When the “EndSars” and “say no to police brutality” protests started from day one we wholly supported the movement and used all our platforms to promote the messages (I believe the promoters can verify this information) as we believed in the cause.”

“On Tuesday when the curfew was announced we heeded the governors warnings and didn’t want our staff in any danger, hence by 3pm our staff had been ordered to leave the site and the board was switched off based on the governors curfew request.

“We had no idea what was going to happen and we feel the same anguish, pain and shock at the events that unfolded and our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and families of this ungodly act.We believe in this movement and that it was the start of the change our generation needed to move our country forward and we will continue to support the youths of this great nation.”

  1. Your staff left by 3pm and the light went of when?
    The cameras went missing when?
    You have killed your brother with your hand and their blood is on your head

  2. To me, all of you are involved if not even a curfew has declared in the (by reason known to governor)& you support this agitation as you said, are you supporting them by leaving them in darkness? Let’s say fact, you all plan it just because of days you’ve lost revenue in that place without the interest of the citizens. But with all of you, father mother relatives nieces altogether milking state recourses God shall judge all of you right with the blood of the citizens you’ve wasted .

  3. During the covid-19 cofew you did not off the Light, but when you have your evil plan with the state Governor and your Godfather it was then you off the light do to cofew abi. God will punish you all

  4. Oh please shit up. When you are as guilty as fuck that’s when you give cork and bull story of early beginnings. Who cares about how you started, we know your kind you all have the stench of guilt and the blood of innocent people. You’ll should fucking sleep with one eye open…..
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, you took the wrong bite.

  5. If you had instructed your staff to leave the billboard to illuminate for the protesters, would #Sanwoolu close down the toll gate??

    Why were all the cameras also removed?? For repair, right??

    Your comment are just merely damage control… just note, the bloods of the innocents are on you all that had one thing all the other to execute tha massacre.
