The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared that he is yet to personally speak with President Muhammadu Buhari about the Lekki shootings on #EndSARS protesters which happened on Tuesday.

Sanwo-Olu said though he has made attempts to speak directly with the President, the attempts have been unsuccessful.

He noted that he called the president’s office twice on Wednesday – first, he was told Buhari is yet to resume at the office and then the second time, he was informed the president is presiding over the weekly Federal Executive Council Meeting (FEC).

The Governor made the disclosure on Thursday during his interview on Arise TV.

He added that he later got a call from the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin who mentioned that he was calling on the order of the President, so he believes his message must have been delivered to Buhari.

He said, “I made calls to want to speak with the President yesterday. First, he hadn’t come to the office and the second time he was at the FEC meeting. So indeed I haven’t spoken to him directly but I actually did call to want to speak to him.

“But like I said he was at the FEC meeting…He was actually the one that asked the Chief of Defence Staff to call me. I think it was when he got my message because when the Chief of Defence called me, he said the President asked him to call. I haven’t spoken to him directly, maybe later today that might happen. I don’t have a report to say this is what he said because we haven’t spoken.”

Naija News reports that in the aftermath of the Lekki toll gate incident, Lagos State on Wednesday, witnessed massive destruction of both private and public properties.

Meanwhile, Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, has stated that the 24-hours curfew imposed on the state due to the breakdown of law and order might be eased on Friday.

He noted that the state government will take the step once the streets are cleared.

“Once we see the streets are cleared up and all the agitation and high nerves have gone down, we might slow down the curfew by tomorrow (Friday) or next tomorrow (Saturday) at the latest,” he said.
