Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu has given an update on the curfew imposed on the state due to the #endsars protests.
According to Sanwo-Olu, he could ease the curfew on Friday depending on the security situation on the ground.
Speaking to Arise TV on Thursday, October 22, the governor addressed the Lekki toll gate shootings and the reprisal attacks that have followed.
“The Govt is looking at easing the lockdown in the state in the next 24 hours, after evaluating the situation on the ground around the state. This is to allow residents to get access to food and other provisions they might be running out of.”
When he was asked who ordered the removal of the CCTV at the toll gate and the power outage just before the shootings by the military, the governor denied he ordered it.
“Nobody ordered, they were security of LCC on the ground. I called the security of LCC that night and because of the curfew they took off the installation. That camera that you saw is not a security camera it is a laser camera that picks your number plate. That is what the camera does. It is not a security camera it is an infrared camera. The security camera is still available.
The security camera is installed on top of the tower and they are there. The camera pulled off is a decision the LCC took because they are not going to be there because of the curfew. The Managing Director of LCC does not have a reporting line to me.”
The Governor also said he would consider making public the videos of the Lekki Shooting captured by the CCTV, if it becomes necessary.
