Buhari syet to confirm military attacks on protesters in Lagos – Monguno
National security adviser Babagana Monguno has said President Muhammadu Buhari was still trying to confirm details of the military shooting on #EndSARS protesters in Lagos on Tuesday.
“We need to verify things first. But the government is not oblivious of the fact that certain things had happened and there is also a possibility that actual facts could be distorted by either party.
“So, the government is going to look at that before coming up with something. But definitely, the government is not treating this issue lightly,”
Mr. Monguno told State House reporters shortly after a meeting of the president and security chiefs.
The NSA also said the president would make a critical announcement soon.
The statement came even as critical institutions, including the United States Department of State, were confirming that soldiers carried out the attacks on protesters, killing and wounding many at the affluent Lekki district.
Amnesty International said at least 10 people were killed in the attack, while Peoples Gazette learnt from security sources that Nigerian Army sought to hand over nine bodies to the police in Lagos on night of the attack
