In a statement signed by the state’s Honourable Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu advised security agents not to arrest anyone because of the curfew.
Sanwo-Olu also urged Lagosians to remain calm and ordered an investigation into the incident.
“There have been reports of shooting at the Lekki Toll Plaza, following the 24-hour curfew imposed on Lagos State to stop criminals who hid under the #EndSARS protests to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens.
“The State Government has ordered an investigation into the incident.
“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised the security agents not to arrest anyone on account of the curfew, which he urges residents to observe for the peaceful atmosphere we all cherish.
“He advises Lagosians to remain calm and not allow criminals, who have hijacked the noble protest of our gallant youths, to succeed in their evil plan of turning our dear state upside down.
“The Governor will do everything within his power to ensure that the lives of all Lagosians are protected at all times.”
