The Attorney General Of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has suggested that hoodlums wearing Military uniforms and not Soldiers were behind the shootings of peaceful protesters at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos state.
Malami said this while speaking to journalists on Monday.
He also revealed that an investigation was ongoing to uncover what actually happened at the Lekki tollgate .
In his words, “it is pre-emptive to conclude that there was even a shooting. You cannot rule out the possibility of perhaps hoodlums that set in to create a scene could equally partake in the process,” the AGF said.
It could be recalled that on the 20th of October, Soldiers allegedly opened fire on peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate, however, the Army denied the allegations, saying that their men were invited by the Lagos state Governor, Jide Sanwo-Olu, to enforce the curfew it imposed on that ill-fated day.
