Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, has denied ordering the removal of CCTV cameras from the Lekki toll gate on Tuesday night.
The Lagos State Governor stated this while speaking with the people of Lagos in a broadcast on Thursday morning.
He also reacted to the statement of the MD of the LCC, who claimed that they took out the installations because of the 24-hour curfew.
Sanwo-Olu noted that only the laser cameras for vehicles were removed and security cameras are still available.
According to him, the cameras captured the shooting at Lekki toll gate and will be used for Investigation.
“Nobody ordered the removal of cameras at the Lekki toll gate. The MD of LCC said because of the curfew, they made the decision to take out installations.”
“The cameras you saw are not security or motion cameras, they are laser cameras for vehicles.”
“The security cameras are still available, and we are using them for our security investigations,” Sanwo-Olu said.
