Popular Nigerian rapper Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz has reacted to the Nigerian Army and Police indictment on the Lekki Massacre, which happened on 20th October 2021.
Recently, the Lagos judicial panel on police brutality on Monday, finally submitted its report to the state government. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu received it at the Government House in Ikeja.
The panel submitted two sets of reports: a consolidated report on police brutality cases and the Lekki incident investigation.
The panel, in its report, found
“From the evidence of General A.I.Taiwo (Commander, 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Nigerian Army, Victoria Island, Lagos) on pages 6, 7, 21, 22, the Panel finds that the Nigerian Army fired both blank and live bullets at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020, for the following reasons:
Apart from the military men in uniform, the Army left its base with vehicles, rifles and guns, containing live and blank bullets. General Taiwo admitted on page 22 that the Army went to the Lekki Toll Gate with live ammunition.
As of October 30, 2020, when the Panel visited the Lekki Toll Gate for its on the spot assessment, it recovered two bullets shells duly analyzed by the forensic expert hired by the Panel, Sentinel, who is very familiar with weapons used by the Nigerian Army.
These bullet shells were said to be the same as or similar to those usually used by the Nigerian Army, and they have expended shells, meaning they were fired live at the Lekki Toll Gate.”
Reacting to this, Falz, in a post shared on his Instagram story, blasted the Nigerian Government, describing them as animals who made the youth doubt their sanity about the Lekki Massacre.
Falz added that the Lagos #EndSars had compiled their report, and everything is now more transparent.
“These animals legit made us doubt our sanity about the Lekki Massacre you know. Panel don compile their report an. We gather dey!”
