Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola stated that the Lekki robbery incident yesterday that left four people dead, occurred because of President Goodluck Jonathan‘s visit to Lagos.
Fashola made the accusations during the Buhari Meets Nigerian Entertainers program in Lagos on Thursday, Sahara TV reports.
In the video below, Fashola can be heard saying:
“Today is a very sad day because this afternoon we lost three policemen in a robbery in Lekki and it was the first of its type in a very long time. And I also know that perhaps what will be would have been but it was sad to see all our security vehicles and personnel deployed to protect one man. All the vehicles we bought for the police were stationed to receive the President in Lagos while the citizens were left vulnerable. Those policemen have children. And tonight, their mothers will have to explain to them why daddy is not coming home. I pray their souls rest in peace…”
