In his speech to the nation about recent happenings in the country, the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari never spoke about the shooting incident that occurred at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday.
This made many Nigerians share some reactions with most of them being negative ones considering how innocent protesters were injured with some dying as result.
After several back and forth, the Presidency through the presidential aide, Femi Adesina has revealed why the president didn’t speak about the incident.
In his submission on Channels TV’s ‘Politics Today’ program, he said;
“The Defence Headquarters issued a statement to say that it was investigating the matter. Lagos State Governor has also set up a probe panel to investigate what really happened.
So, the President couldn’t have said anything because it would be premature and presumptuous while investigation is ongoing. It is after investigation has been concluded that he can speak on the matter.”
