The Minister for Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola on Sunday discovered a hitherto unknown camera at the Lekki Toll Gate, Admiralty Circle, in Lagos.
Fashola and his colleagues were in Lagos on the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari to commiserate with the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the loss of lives and properties in the violence that rocked the state last week.
Fashola who discovered the camera during an on the spot assessment at the Lekki Toll Gate said the camera must have been planted by some subversive elements prior to the shootings by the soldiers for ulterior motives.
He later picked up the camera with an aid of a handkerchief and handed it over to Sanwo-Olu, saying that the camera will “help with the ongoing investigations into the shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate.
“It requires forensic analysis and could be used in the investigations to unravel the mystery surrounding the shootings at the Toll Gate, I believe.”
Those in the FG’s entourage include: Ministers of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Mines and Industries, Olamilekan Adegbite, Niyi Adebayo, Trade and Investments and Olorunnibe Mamora, Health state.
Also, some South-West Governors such as Ekiti, Ondo, Oyo, and Lagos States, Kayode Fayemi, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, Seyi Makinde, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, respectively, were on the inspection tour in the company of newsmen.
