The Nigerian Army has expressed its displeasure over Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s denial that he did not invite soldiers to restore peace and order in the state.

Recall that after the shooting of peaceful ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate Plaza in Lagos allegedly by security operatives, Governor Sanwo-Olu had said forces beyond him were responsible for the killings.

But Ahmed Taiwo, a brigadier general of the Nigerian Army, told the Lagos judicial Panel on Saturday, that the Governor requested the support of the military on October 20, the day of the shooting, after the #EndSARS crisis degenerated into chaos.

“I spoke with the governor and said the army was unhappy that he said he did not ask the army to intervene. But I’m sure, after we’ve watched everything, we saw he had more than reasonable grounds to ask the army to intervene,” said Taiwo.

“Perhaps, it was the way everything went that made him say so.”
