The attorney-general of the federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami has voiced the likelihood of the killings that had occurred at the Lekki tollgate a fortnight ago to have been done by Hoodlums in the guise of soldiers
Protesters who had called for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) had taken flight two weeks ago across the country due the the killings
The Police unit had been disbanded but the protest persistently continued as the needs and demands of the protesters had not been completely met by the federal government
The attorney-General while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja, said the investigation was underway to ascertaining what had truly happened at the Lekki tollgate.
Malami said it was “pre-emptive” to conclude that there had even been shootings, adding that “hoodlums” may have been hired to create a scene.
“You cannot rule out the possibility of perhaps hoodlums that set in to create a scene could equally partake in the process,” the AGF said.
