He said the security officers who shot at End SARS protesters got the instruction wrong.
According to him, he found out about the incident from the wife of a cabinet member who called him.
“The events that started around 7-7:30pm came as a total shock. I don’t know how the officers got it all wrong because the instruction was that police won’t be out until 10-10:30pm when all citizens should have gotten to their various homes. This is totally against what we stand for.”
“The army does not report to me. I have reported the matter to the highest command in the military. It’s not something we are going to gloss over. A judicial panel will be set up to investigate it. I have escalated it to the highest level of the military,” he added.
He, therefore, called on leaders at all level to speak up and put an end to the protests.
