#LekkiMassacre: Why We First Denied Our Personnel Were At The Lekki Tollgate, Says Army In A Trending Video—As part of its oath at the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and other matters, Brigadier-General AI Taiwo, the Commander 81 of the Military Intelligence Brigade has explained why the military initially denied its personnel involved in the October 20 shooting at the Lekki tollgate.
The Genius Media Nigeria recall that shortly after the incident on October 20, the Nigerian Army via its Twitter handle, denied the involvement of its officers.
Testifying before the Lagos state Judicial panel this afternoon, Taiwo said the military initially denied because it did not have its fact available.
”The first statement was born out of the fact that we did not have the facts available to us and the second was because nobody was sent to the Lekki tollgate to breakup any protest” he said
