In an audio recording that aired on Channels Television that is purportedly the APC chieftain’s voice, he decried the use of live bullets on protesters while also denying being a stakeholder in Lekki toll gate.

He also recalled how he spoke against the incidents occurring in the nation and also advising Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to find a way to handle the #EndSARS crisis properly.

“Why will they use live bullets?,” the former governor asked.

“I will never, never be part of any carnage. I will never be part of that.”

Tinubu also denied having any investment in the Lekki Concession Company, the firm which manages the tollgate.

“I have no dime, no kobo investment in the tollgate,” he said.

“We are about 13 to 14 days into the protests now. Before now, I was being accused and reported to the Presidency that I was behind the protests, that I was a sponsor of the protests.”

Tinubu also revealed that the government has made provisions to compensate the families of the victim.

“He has put N200m together as part of restitution and compensation for those attacked,” he added.
