Why we first denied our personnel were at the Lekki tollgate – Nigerian Army (video)

Brigadier-General AI Taiwo, the Commander 81 of the Military Intelligence Brigade, who appeared before the Lagos judicial panel probing the October 20 shooting at the Lekki tollgate has explained why the military initially denied its personnel were at the venue.

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

However today, 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” he said
