The Nigerian Military has made it known that the way Lagos State Governor denied inviting them to come and restore order at the Lekki Tollgate area in the heat of the #EndSARS protests makes them unhappy.
Commander of the 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Brigadier Ahmed Taiwo, disclosed this on Saturday during his address to the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the state government to probe cases of police brutality.
“The Nigerian army was not happy about two things. The first is his (Governor Sanwo-Olu’s denial) that he asked us to intervene when in actual fact, it was the proper thing to do,” he said.
“He called the Chief of Army Staff and the GOC 81 division and asked for intervention because the police had been overrun”.
The Army Commander made the comments after presenting videos before the panel as part of evidence of the violence that had erupted across the state.
“I’m sure that after we have watched everything, we have seen that he had reasonable grounds to ask the army to intervene,” he said.
