Recall that after the Lekki tollgate incident of October 20, 2020, the Nigerian Army quickly came out to deny that its personnel were at the scene, labeling the news of the incident as fake.

Brigadier-General AI Taiwo, the Commander 81 of the Military Intelligence Brigade, after accepting the military’s involvement in the incident has now explained why they denied at first.

While Testifying before the Lagos state Judicial panel yesterday, November 21, Taiwo said the military initially denied because it did not have its fact available.

‘The first statement was born out of the fact that we did not have the facts available to us and the second was because nobody was sent to the Lekki tollgate to breakup any protest” he said.
