Former Education Minister, Dr Oby Ezekwesili has urged the governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu to respond to the document making the round that his government has approved mass burial for the 103 persons killed during the 2020 #EndSARS protest in Lagos.
Speaking via her Twitter handle on Sunday, Ezekwesili said she wanted to verify if the document in circulation was true or false as the governor had never accepted at anytime publicly that 103 person actually died during the EndSARS protest at the Lekki tollgate, Lagos.
If the document was true, she said: “Mr Governor actually knew the State had a record of 103 dead bodies from the #EndSARS shootings?”
Ezekwesili tweets: “Mr Governor of @followlasg , @jidesanwoolu , here is a document that has gone viral on social media, stating that your government procured services for mass burial of 103 corpses killed during the #EndSARS protest?
“Is this so?
“Mr Governor actually knew the State had a record of 103 dead bodies from the #EndSARS shootings?
We need your urgent response”
