The Lagos state government responded to the shooting at the toll collection point in Lekki, where ENDSARS protesters gathered on Tuesday evening, October 20.

There have been reports of shooting at Lekki Toll Plaza following a 24-hour curfew imposed in Lagos State to stop criminals hiding under #EndSARS protests to wreak havoc among innocent citizens.

The state government has ordered an investigation into the incident. Governor Babajide Sanvo-Olu has advised security officials not to arrest anyone because of the curfew, which urges residents to observe the peaceful atmosphere we all love.

Advise the Lagosians to remain calm and not allow the criminals who have kidnapped the noble protest of our brave young people from their evil plan to overthrow our dear state.

The Governor will do everything in his power to ensure that the life of all Lagos is always protected. Gbenga Omotoso HC, Information and Strategy
