Nigerian Defence Headquarters’ Director of Information, Maj. Gen. John Eneche has finally spoken to a press conference about the Lekki Toll Gate shooting which many said was perpetrated by soldiers with overwhelming evidence to back this claim.

Speaking on a report of soldiers shooting the protesters at the Lekki tollgate, he described it as mere allegations as some military analysts had dismissed as untrue.

Eneche however did not disclose more details on the joint security task force. He added that Operation MESA is under the control of the state governments, and has both the Army, Navy, Air Force, Civil Defence, and police personnel.

He said;

“The issue is not an operation that I can respond to, but I can tell you that it is an allegation, for now; so let us not set the cart before the horse.

“If the matter was still open-ended, I would have had a response for you but it is no longer open-ended because immediately, not even up to five hours before midnight, the Governor of Lagos set up an inquiry. So, whatever we say now will not be fair to the commission.

“So these operations are still standing and running and I am aware that the state governments are using them in all these capacities, that is internal security.

“The level we are now is internal security and that is why the police proactively came out and then deployed all their force package that is necessary to handle that (violence).”
