The governor said this during a live programme on ARISE TV on Thursday.

The judicial panel was set up following protests against police brutality. It has already commenced sitting.

”Nobody ordered the removal of cameras at the Lekki tollgate. The MD of LCC said because of the curfew, they made the decision to take out installations,” he said.

”The cameras you saw are not security or motion cameras, they are laser cameras for vehicles. The security cameras are still available and we are using them for our security investigations.”

On Tuesday, soldiers opened fire on protesters who had converged on the tollgate to protest against police brutality. Though the Lagos state government said no live was lost in the attack.

Widespread violence broke out in Lagos after reports of the Lekki shooting rippled.
