Tinubu: I did not invite soldiers to defend TVC and the nation to avoid bloodshed
Former Lagos governor and national leader of the All-Progressive Congress, Asivaju Bola Tinubu, says he did not ask security officials to stop the “attackers” who razed The Nation Newspaper and Television Continental to prevent the spread of blood.
This was announced on Sunday in a statement entitled “#EndSARS Protests; a fundamental lesson in democratic governance ”.
The bandits looted shops en masse and set fire to several public and private facilities, including Television Continental and The Nation newspaper, both of which are associated with him.
This happened after the soldiers shot some of the demonstrators at the toll collection point in Lekki.
Although Tinubu confirmed that he was the lender of the media house, he denied making money from the toll station in Lekki.
He said, “On the other hand, I am really a financial promoter and investor for the Nation and TVC. It was widely known and circulated via social media that some attackers would take advantage of the situation to attack the facilities of the Nation newspaper and TVC in Lagos.
“The attackers have arrived. Both structures were significantly damaged. Even though I am equipped with advance warning of an impending offense, I have not called anyone to deploy an army or police, let alone attack, kill or injure those who have destroyed and destroyed the property. I didn’t want bloodshed.
