Desmond Elliott Reacts After List of People killed at Lekki toll Gate leaked Online [Video]


Desmond Elliot, an actor and politician, has commented on the results of the Lagos state probe into the shooting event at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020

In its report, the commission indicted the Nigerian Army and police, calling the episode a slaughter. The identities of nine people who were killed and others who were injured during the attack were also included in the report.

Desmond Elliot, speaking on TVC this morning, November 16, said the story was heartbreaking and that he knew a disaster had occurred on that day.

”I read it and it was very heartbreaking. Heartwrenching. I knew there was a calamity, chaos. Except you are not Nigerian or you are not human. You would feel for everybody. I have always said something. When MKO died and the government of the day denied and denied, it took this government to come and say you know what, we have wronged you. This is the truth and they actually gave democracy day. 

We have always said the truth comes out. There is no how you would try to hide it, the truth would come out. 

But I now looked at it from another angle. Is it possible that this government didn’t know what  was going to come out? Of course they did but the government of today, I am talking of the state government, I want to believe knew what was going to come out. 

There is going to be an official statement so let me not jump the gun because I am also in office. But the fact that it even came out and even saw the light of day…” he said
