Speaking in a phone interview with Channel Television, Tinubu said: “I will never be part of any carnage. The use of live ammunition (against the protesters) is condemnable in totality.

I did not order the shooting of the protesters. There is a limitation here, I can only control my personal security guards.

I was extremely shocked when I heard about the shooting and I was ready to complain to the highest level.

It is early hours of the morning, there’s no way I can talk to the authorities or wake them up now. I have tried to reach the NSA, I have tried to reach the head of the army.”

Recall that Tinubu’s phone number was reportedly leaked online and angry youths bombarded him with calls slamming and accusing him for Lekki Toll gate massacre.
