Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina has disclosed that the President didn’t mention anything about the shooting of #ENDSARS protesters in Lekki on Tuesday night during a nationwide broadcast because it would be “premature and presumptuous.”

There were widespread condemnations from Nigerians who berated Buhari for not mentioning about the shootings or empathizing with the victims during the much-awaited presidential broadcast.

Femi Adesina, who appeared on Politics Today, a live show on Channel Televisions monitored by African News Today, said the President didn’t mention the shooting during the broadcast because it was being investigated.

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.”
