Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has explained what he meant when he said that ‘forces’ beyond his direct control were to be blamed for the shooting of End SARS protesters at Lekki toll gate.

Speaking with Arise News on Thursday, Sanwo-Olu said he made the comment because he doesn’t know or have powers over the Military.

He said, ”What I was trying to explain is that the hierarchy and chains of command of the military is not something that I know or have responsibility for, so I do not pretend that I have such powers to control or activate the military.”

The Governor also revealed that there may be more to the End SARS protest due to the audios, visuals intercepted by security operatives in the country.

”There have been audio communications we have heard that connote or suggest that there is more to the End SARS than all of us thought.

”I cannot begin to make extensive comment or comment that might sound insensitive. I think these are the work of the security operatives. I am sure they are in possession of some of these materials, audio/visuals that we have seen and it goes to some quarters that we need to investigate that some of these things are deeper than we have seen on the street.

”It is the work of the security operatives to try and ascertain clearly. At my level, I cannot speculate if they have not been verified and confirmed.”
