Governor Babjide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has described the Lekki shooting as the toughest night of our lives, crediting “forces beyond our direct control” to have sponsored the violent act that resulted in several casualties.

The governor said in a post on his Twitter handle on Tuesday after a visit to victims of the Lekki toll gate shooting that occurred Tuesday night.

Governor Sanwo-Olu promised to work with the Federal Government to unravel the circumstances and perpetrators of the violent act, adding that he will make a state broadcast today.

He said, “This is the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history, but we will face it and come out stronger. I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki.

“It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.

“There are currently 10 patients at the Gen Hospital, 11 at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care. 3 patients have been discharged & we will continue to monitor and ensure all patients get the best care.

“As the Governor of our state, I recognize the buck stops at my table and I will work with the FG to get to the root of this unfortunate incident and stabilise all security operations to protect the lives of our residents. I will give a state broadcast in the morning.”
