House Of Reps Speaker Counters Gov. Sanwo-Olu, Says There Were Casualties At Toll gate Last Night

Events in my home state Lagos, last night and up until this afternoon, have left my heart heavy and my spirit disturbed.

After sixty years, our democracy should have grown beyond the point where conflicting visions of nationhood result in violence on the streets and blood on the ground.

It is unavoidably and painfully clear that there were a number of casualties as a result of gunfire at the Lekki Toll Gate.

Therefore, there needs to be a quick and thorough investigation to determine the facts of what happened last night in Lagos. Our nation urgently needs and the Nigerian people deserve an accounting of the acts that led to the events of last night.

I urge for calm whilst we get a truer picture of events.

In Lagos and everywhere else, too much blood has already been spilled in our country, let there be no more.

May God bless and keep you all. And may God bless and keep our Federal Republic of Nigeria.
