Sanwo-Olu orders investigation on policemen who assaulted #OccupyLekkiTollgate protesters
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said policemen who brutalised #OccupyLekkiTollgate protesters at the Lekki tollgate on Saturday won’t go free.
According to a report, Information and Strategy Commissioner, Gbenga Omotoso stated this on Monday at a media briefing organised by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) surrounding the firm’s repossession of the Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza, called Lekki Tollgate Plaza.
He said: “The governor is very unhappy with what happened on Saturday, that people were brutalized, and he has directed Police Commissioner Hakeem Odumosu to investigate the matter. Whoever is found culpable, I assure you, will not go without punishment. This is because Mr. Sanwo-Olu has said it loud and clear that he is not somebody who will abuse the rights of others.
“That’s why when the whole thing started, you will recall, he joined the protests twice. He waved the flag, he carried the placard and he took the position of the protesters to the President. Besides that, he addressed them. So, he is not going to be the one who will stand by and watch Lagosians being brutalised.”
