Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, has alleged that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu invited the military during the #EndSARS protest in Lagos to avoid total anarchy.
He disclosed this while appearing before the Lagos judicial panel on Saturday.
The army commander alleged that Sanwo-Olu called on the military for support on October 20, after the #EndSARS protest degenerated into chaos.
He said, “I spoke with the governor and said the army was unhappy that he said he did not ask for army’s intervention but I am sure that after you watched everything (video footages), you saw he had more than enough grounds to ask for army’s intervention; perhaps it was the way everything went.”
