Lekki CCTV Footage Available
The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that the shooting of the Nigerian #EndSars protesters at the Lekki Tollgate on the 20th of October, 2020 has been captured by security cameras.
He mentioned this while he was asked why there were no footage of the incident; as the cameras were removed, on an interview on Arise TV.
He said the footage would be used to investigate the issue and would be submitted to the judicial Panel and experts for analysis.
He said the footage could absolutely be analysed.
I will just speak up the truth on what actually happened. There is security personnel of The Lekki Concession Company on the ground. I had called the Managing Director that night when I saw the pictures. What he said to me is that because of the curfew that has been announced, they took a decision that they will take out installations that are critical to them. The camera that you saw is not a security camera or a motion camera. The camera is a laser camera for vehicles. It picks the tag on cars and number plates.
It is not a camera for human beings. It is an infrared camera that just picks the tag on the vehicles. Security cameras for the plaza are still available. These are some of the footage that we are going to use for our investigation. Security cameras are installed on top of towers and they are there because I have seen them. Nobody can touch the security camera.
These are things that we can leave open for citizens to come and verify when the panel of inquiries start. We will adopt this as evidence so that experts can come and review what kind of camera are those shown at the footage.Babajide Sanwo-Olu
