The Federal Government has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to speak on the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate plaza because he was waiting for more details.
Speaking on Arise Television on Friday, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, revealed that the president has ordered an investigation into the shootings of #EndSARS protesters.
He said, “For sure the president has ordered an investigation, he had a national security meeting yesterday.
“I can tell you that this is already ongoing because the president wants to have all the facts which will absolutely be made public.
“It is important to get all the facts right before we go forward, in this case, it’s going to be difficult to hide these facts because we live in a multimedia world and we have pieces of evidence and corroboration and I think it is important to get the facts right.
“I think that’s the path the president has towed and I am sure that when the facts are made available, this president – because he has integrity – will level with the Nigerian people about what happened on Tuesday in Lekki.”
While insisting that SARS has been disbanded, Sunday Dare said all five demands by protesters have been accepted.
The minister said, “Previously, we just had lip service that SARS scrapped. For the first time, you have a presidential pronouncement that SARS has been dissolved followed by the inspector-general and then we saw quick steps thereafter.
“And I think when you look at what has happened in the past and the level of responsiveness and concrete steps, the whole five demands of the youth were wholeheartedly accepted by the president and he set up a process.”
