The African Action Congress, ACC, has asked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State to account for the dead victims of the Lekki Shooting.
Recall that officers of the Nigerian Army opened fire on unarmed #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020. However, the army has repeatedly denied the allegation, saying its operatives only fired blank bullets into the air, not at the protesters.
The governor has also denied reports that over 17 deaths were recorded during the incident, noting that only two persons died later as a result of gunshot wounds.
But in a tweet via its Twitter page on Thursday, the opposition party said the governor lied to Lagosians that he has been to all morgues in the state and cannot find dead bodies. The party noted that a CNN report showed that the army used live bullets on #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate.
According to the party, the Lagos governor must be held responsible for inviting the Nigerian Army to the scene of the protest and earlier denying that he has no idea that soldiers were at the toll gate. The AAC also mocked the governor and the Lagos state government for calling for the identification of missing persons.
