I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki .

It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.

As the Governor of our state, I recognize the buck stops at my table and I will work with the FG to get to the root of this unfortunate incident and stabilise all security operations to protect the lives of our residents.

I will give a state broadcast in the morning.

Meanwhile, the Lekki-Ikoyi toll gate situated on the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge was set on fire by yet to be identified persons.

While a branch of Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) situated on Admiralty Road Lekki Phase one was also burnt down.
