Nigerians Tag Lagos Governor, Murderer following Military shooting of Protesters at Lekki Toll Gate
The nation and the world at large mourn over the news, videos and reports circulating over social media of the result of the abrupt curfew imposed by the Lagos State Government under the leadership of Babajide Sanwoolu.
In post which has been shared and reposted severally including outspoken Nigerian Celebrities like Vector, it called out the Lagos Governor for a gross and unjust directive of sending the military who fired upon peaceful protesters who were seen sitting down, waving the Nigerian Flag and singing the National Anthem.
The post reads:
Mr Governor @jidesanwoolu . It is against international law to order your police to shoot at peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos Nigeria. You ordered your men to turn off the security cameras and street lights in order to kill innocent protesters.
Mr Governor you are committing war crimes in engaging in such tactics against innocent and peaceful protesters.
Call on your officers to back down and stand down.
For almost two weeks now our protesters and protest have been peaceful as being observed by the international and global community.
We will not hesitate to start a petition against you and this inept government for human rights violations with the international criminal court of justice.
You politicians have paid and bribe thugs and hoodlums to infiltrate peaceful protesters to cause mayhem and anarchy.
You’ve hired arsonists and anarchist to disrupt our peaceful movement in order to justify the use of force since this movement have no leader you guys could bribe as usual.
Mr Governor order you men to stand down and go after the hoodlums.
Your swift response is expected and thanks in anticipation.
Dear Nigerians share this
Tag everyone and every international organization for human rights.
We must end this brutality.
Also in an earlier post by the governor, it cited the high jacking of the protests by hoodlums who raided a police station in Orile Iganmu area of Lagos State as one of the reasons for the curfew.
The question we at Naija Online TV Blog would like to ask is, why not send the Military to Orile or other areas where thugs were not observing the peaceful part of the protest?
Anyone who knows how you’re appointed knows the only reason the army went to Toll Gate is to protect your godfather, Tinubu’s investment.
