Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that no protesters were killed on Tuesday October 20, 2020 contrary to numerous reports circulating in the social media.

In a statewide broadcast to Lagosians on Wednesday morning, Mr Sanwo-Olu said that he and his commissioners had moved around the state and visited scores of wounded people in the hospital. He said that some of the wounded people were undergoing surgery but that doctors were optimistic that they would make full recoveries.

The governor said he had directed a suspension of all state activities except those essential to security and that all flags would fly at half-mast in honour of the wounded protesters.

He called for resilience among denizens of the state and appealed to all protesters to calm down. He offered an apology to all those wounded during the confrontation with the security agencies and said that his government was committed to protecting the lives and property of all its citizens.

Mr Sanwo-Olu said that his government believed in the sanctity of human lives and that he would never abandon the people of the state.
