Hours after ordering the immediate investigation and probing of those involved in the Lekki Toll gate massacre which happened last night, Lagos State Governor Sanwo-Olu has paid a visit to the victims injured during the shooting.

Recall Sanwo-Olu yesterday placed a 24 hours curfew in Lagos which later turned into a black Tuesday for it’s citizens as the Nigerian army allegedly fires shots at peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll gate.

Governor Sanwo-Olu posted pictures of himself visiting the victims alongside a lengthy statement.

“This may be the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make notes in our history, but we will face it.

As a Father and Governor, I watched in anguish the unacceptable event that occurred last night at the Lekki tollgate.

The decision to impose curfew was borne out of concern for innocent protesters and the entire citizenry of our dear state. It will be foolhardy for a leader to try to protect his citizens and still turn around to put their lives at risk.

However, this is not the time to trade blames. We will take it in our stride and move.

I paid a visit to all the victims of the unfortunate shooting incident at the various hospitals where they are being urgently attended to.

There are currently 10 patients at the General Hospital in Lagos Island, 11 at Reddington hospital and 4 at Vedic hospital with mild to moderate levels of injuries, while 2 are receiving intensive medical care. And 3 patients have been discharged.

I implored the attending doctors to give them the best care, while we cover all their medical bills.

We are working with the Federal Govt to harmonize and stabilize all security operations while prioritizing the lives of the residents we swore to protect and serve.

I would also be giving a statewide address in a few hours.

We will come out stronger.” He wrote
