Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has reacted to the defense by the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos State.

Fani-Kayode said the denial by the Nigerian Army was a grave implication on the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

In a tweet, the former minister said Sanwo-Olu was thrown under the bus by the Army.

He wrote: “The @HQNigerianArmy claim it was the LASG that asked for soldiers to be deployed at Lekki. The implications of this for @jidesanwoolu are grave. He has been thrown under the bus by the military.”

Recall that the 81 division of the Nigerian Army had claimed that Sanwo-Olu had invited them to intervene in the End SARS crisis.

A statement by the division, however, insisted that its soldiers did not shoot at the peaceful protesters.

The division described the report of shooting as false, aimed at causing anarchy.

Confused Analyst. The Army did not say Sanwo Olu did not invite them. Our Constitution empowers the military to get involved in civil crisis, WHEN CALLED IN BY THE CIVIL AUTHORITY.  The President in his capacity as the Commander In Chief, can even exercise such Authority over a State if the situation warrants it; an example was the second waive of the Kaduna zcrusis in 2001. In the first waive, hundreds of lives were lost, in the second waive when history was about to repeat itself, and the Acting Governor continued his ''mumuism', Obj called in the then GOC 1 Division,,  General Ogomudia, to takeover and stop the riot.

Please don't mind the moron with the frivolous claim. Has he ever heard of the Geneva Convention to which the country is a signatory. You never ever use live bullets on peaceful protesters period
