Recall that two days ago, he had previously said there were no deaths recorded in the lekki massacre. He also said everything that happened during the lekki massacre were forces beyond his control.

The lekki massacre happened on Tuesday and more than 70 lives were lost as a result of the shooting from the armed forces. He also ordered a clean up of Lagos State and announced that the Lagos State government is doing all it can to bring offending officers to book.

He also relaxed the curfew he had formerly imposed on the state and announced that people would be allowed to go out from 8am to 6pm effective from tomorrow, Saturday 24th October 2020.
