Femi Fani-Kayode

A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has spoken up, reacting to the defense by the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos State.

Fani-Kayode said the denial by the Nigerian Army was a grave implication on the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

In a tweet, the former minister said Sanwo-Olu was thrown under the bus by the Army.

He wrote: “The @HQNigerianArmy claim it was the LASG that asked for soldiers to be deployed at Lekki. The implications of this for @jidesanwoolu are grave. He has been thrown under the bus by the military.”

Recall that the 81 division of the Nigerian Army had claimed that Sanwo-Olu had invited them to intervene in the End SARS crisis.

A statement by the division, however, insisted that its soldiers did not shoot at the peaceful protesters.

The division described the report of shooting as false, aimed at causing anarchy.
