CCTV cameras captured footage of Lekki, but they were not removed, explains Governor Sanvo Olu.
Lagos Governor Babajide Sanvo Olu said the CCTV cameras at the Lekki toll station had not been removed.
He insisted that on Tuesday he did not order the removal of CCTV cameras from the Lecchi toll station.
Sanwo-Olu reported Thursday morning, addressing residents on a statewide broadcast.
He agreed with the director of the LCC, who said he had made the decision to clean up the facilities due to the 24-hour curfew.
According to Sanwo-Olu, only laser cameras have been removed from vehicles, and surveillance cameras are still available.
CCTV cameras have captured the tragedy at the Lecchi toll station and will be used for the investigation.
“Nobody ordered the cameras to be removed at the toll station in Lekki. The LCC executive director said that due to the curfew, it was decided to eliminate the installations.
“The cameras you saw are not security or traffic cameras, they are laser vehicles for vehicles.
“CCTV cameras are still available and we use them for our security investigations,” Sanwo-Olu said.
Sanwo Olu imposed a curfew on Tuesday after more than 10 days of protests against ending the SARS epidemic across the state.
A few hours after the start of 4:00 pm, people, believed to be officers of the Nigerian army, opened fire on demonstrators gathered at a toll station in Lekki.
