Lekki Shootings: Death Toll Not More Than Two – Governor Abiodun by Doraty1(f): 7:01pm On Oct 27, 2020
Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has said the number of deaths recorded from last week’s Lekki Toll Gate shootings in Lagos State has not risen above two.

DAILY POST reports that some End SARS protesters in Lekki were reportedly shot by men said to be in military uniforms.

There have been confusion over the number of protesters who died as a result of the shootings as government and protesters claimed contradicting figures.

While speaking at a Peace Consolidation Meeting of Stakeholders with the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Mr. Adeleye Oyebade, at the Arcade Ground, Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta on Tuesday, Gov Abiodun said those peddling fake news on the social media deliberately increased the figures to sew the seed of discord.

Abiodun recalled that “there was someone who was at the scene of the incident that day that was on live video, broadcasting that 70 people have died, hundred people have died, there’s blood all over the whole place.”

According to him, he was worried and put a call through to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to confirm if truly many people have died as being reported by people on the social media.

“That night, we started going round to all the hospitals around Lekki, Ikoyi and the Island; we went to all the morgues; called for people who have missing corpse to come and report. First day, second day, third day and up till now, the number of deaths, I don’t think it has gone past two. I am not sure it has gone past two,” Ogun governor said.

Abiodun added further that “Since that day, nobody has come to say we are reporting a missing person; and some people continue to plant that seed of discord. We need to stop. We need to be more patriotic, this is not who we are. We should also be more circumspect,” he stated.

Meanwhile, he condemned in its entirety, the shooting of peaceful protesters or any other, saying, “We condemn the shooting of anyone – civilian, police or military. We do not believe the military should come and shoot people who are protesting. We did not support it in any language. It is not tenable and not acceptable.”

Arrrrrrrh

What's a charade facts! undecided

“That night, we started going round to all the hospitals around Lekki, Ikoyi and the Island; we went to all the morgues; called for people who have missing corpse to come and report. First day, second day, third day and up till now, the number of deaths, I don’t think it has gone past two. I am not sure it has gone past two,” Ogun governor said

From the above, the news seems charade than true to me. I disagree they went to every hospital or morgue to verified. Welcome to Nigeria where people are paid welfare fee and they will do ¼ of the money given to them. There's high possibility he send few lazy and selfish convour to check few hospital if truly they went to check.

Certainity is lack in this news, that's why he's using these words "I don't think".

Even if it's just one person, can you replace the person?

The whole soldiers should be arrested and paraded through the streets of Lagos like common criminals.

Sparogatively, when did Ogun state's Abiodun become Lagos state governor?

Your people are crying about the bad state of Ota Road and Atan-Agbara road and you are here poking into Lagos state's affair.

Mr Man, please face your state!

How did you know Mr Aproko? Have you relocated your state secretariat to Lekki? Some times these people need to just keep quiet rather than provoking the people unnecessarily.

I never posted on any of my social media pages about the endsars protest, not because I wasn’t in sympathy with protesters but because of their myopic reason for the agitation. Yes, the protest started as endsars after several derogatory reports about the sars people. My displeasure was why keep a protest of such magnitude as just endsars, endpolice brutality with little or no publicity or protest against the major and fundamental problem...BAD GOVERNANCE, CORRUPTION, NEPOTISTIC AND MEDIOCRE APPOINTMENTS in government parastatals. which birth the unprofessionalism in sars. how could you narrow a movement of such magnitude to endsars. All over western media it was about Nigerians protesting against police brutality instead of bad and corrupt governance . Even the corrupt Nigerian politicians were supporting the endsars movement instead of being in hiding because of possible jungle justice on them by the youth. Trust me, it was an opportunity to make the government sit up and paint a bad picture of governance in Nigeria in its entirety to the world even if they know already, but we threw it away. Well, we may have another chance to right it and have a movement of such momentum but it will take a long time because the corrupt elites or cabals will not be this complacent to be beaten twice.

This one is a different type of idiot!
After agreeing with labour, he still refused to pay N30k minimum wage.
All roads in the state are bad.
You can't boast of a straight stretch of1kilometre of road without portholes in the whole state.
He doesn't have 1 achievement since he became governor.

This idiot of a Governor will not face his state and give them the required development instead of speaking out on matters like this.

Did you include the ones whose bodies soldiers went away with and hid or buried?

Don't worry, US, UK and EU are all interested in this case and when they are ready for you idiots, no stone will be left unturned and all the perpetrators will be brought to book.

Also, what about all the missing people who were last seen at the lekki toll gate before the shooting, they suddenly vanished?

These fools must think they're in 1920. If these people can deny something the whole world saw with overwhelming proof, then I wonder what they must've done during the civil war and in the north east that they're hiding.
