Journalists were denied access into the venue as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State swore in Commissioners and special advisers on Tuesday.
The venue of the event, Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, was filled with security operatives including policemen, DSS officials and bouncers as people struggled to enter the auditorium.
A further report revealed that the Governor’s press crew was not allowed into the venue as they were asked to go to the gallery where they cannot have a proper view of the event.
Journalists, however, did not follow the instructions as the task force police officers were waiting for the final order to drive the journalists away.
At the end of the struggle, cameramen were allowed into the hall while the reporters were ejected to the gallery.
Gaining access to the gallery was another thug of war. After much hassle, newsmen accessed the gallery amidst anger and frustration.
At the gallery, it was difficult to observe happenings inside the hall as decorative curtains blocked the view.
