Why we initially lied that we were not at Lekki Tollgate – Nigerian Military

Brigadier-General AI Taiwo, the Commander 81 of the Military Intelligence Brigade, has explained why the military initially denied its personnel involved in the October 20 shooting at the Lekki tollgate.

Recall that after the incident on October 20, the Nigerian Army via its Twitter handle, denied the involvement of its officers.

Testifying before the Lagos state Judicial panel, Taiwo said the military initially denied because it did not have its fact available.

”The first statement was born out of the fact that we did not have the facts available to us and the second was because nobody was sent to the Lekki tollgate to breakup any protest”.
