Those Who Said There Was No Lekki Massacre Won’t Accept Report”- Says Aisha Yesufu

Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu stated that people who denied that Lekki massacre happened on the 20th of October 2020 will not accept because of a recent report by Lagos Panel.

It would be recalled that the Lagos State Panel of Investigation in its recently published report about the Lekki Toll Gate incident revealed that police and officials of the Nigerian Army deliberately killed and harmed armless young people fighting the extrajudicial killings by the Nigerian police.

In the report, Major General Taiwo, who showed up before the Panel during the investigation let the panel know that the soldiers acted on the order of Buratai, who in diverts got an order from the Commander-in-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting to the recent development, Aisha Yesufu commended the Lagos panel for their objective report.

The BBOG co-convener who was at the forefront of the EndSARS protest in October 2020 described the act as the highest level of activism.

She wrote on her Twitter page wrote:

“They said no one was killed and asked us to produce the bodies they took. You see all these people who denied there was massacre at Lekki Toll Gate, come 2025 when their principals are out of office, they will become advocates of good governance and democracy and hold government accountable.

The ones who denied #ChibokGirls are today’s advocates.

“Activism is not just about being at protest grounds and making demands. Courage and bravery is not only facing guns and bullets on the streets.

You see what the Lagos panel did with this report? It is Activism of the highest order. It is bravely and courage personified.

“The people who denied that massacre happened on the 20th of October 2021 will not accept because of this report. Don’t hold your breath!

It’s been 7 years and those who denied #ChibokGirls were abducted, still do, in spite of all the reports.You know the truth that’s all that matters!”
