Nigerian recording artiste and human rights activist, Falz real name Folarin Falana has joined hundreds of other Nigerians mourning the murder of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday, October 20.
According to the rapper and entertainment polymath, the shooting of protesters is uncalled for and needless.
1st News gathered that Military personnel opened fire on peaceful protesters; and it caused mayhem at what was previously a peaceful gathering.
Falz, in a live video said;
“The military is shooting at its own people, this is a war and we are fighting against
This is the worst thing I’ve seen, I don’t really know how to explain it, in all my life
This country has always been f**Cked up but this is the worst.”
Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has since reacted to the event that played out.
Sanwo-Olu, while reacting in a statement issued by Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso; said there had been reports of shooting at the Lekki Toll Plaza; following the 24-hour curfew imposed on Lagos State to stop criminals who hid under the #EndSARS protests to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens.
“The State Government has ordered an investigation into the incident.
“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised the security agents not to arrest anyone on account of the curfew; which he urges residents to observe for the peaceful atmosphere we all cherish,” the statement said.
The statement quoted Sanwo-Olu as advising Lagosians to remain calm and not allow criminals; who had hijacked the noble protest of gallant youths, to succeed in their evil plan of turning the State upside down.
“The Governor will do everything within his power to ensure that the lives of all Lagosians are protected at all times,” the statement said.
