..Dismisses rumour of fleeing Lagos
The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC),
Bola Ahmed Tinubu says he did not travel out of the country amid the #EndSARS protests.
Recall that there were the rumour that the former Lagos governor travelled out to avoid being mobbed by some angry protesters who accused him of being behind the Lekki shooting.
On Tuesday, soldiers opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate, and this sparked off an outrage in Nigeria and across the world.
Addressing journalists after visiting Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos on Saturday, Tinubu dismissed the rumour of his travel as fake news, describing himself as ”Jagaban”.
The APC leader holds the title of Jagaban of Borgu in Niger state.
“I didn’t go nowhere; I’m a Lagosian and I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still a Jagaban,” he declared.
“Fake news is all over the place. They say Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.”
Tinubu also condemned the burning of police stations and other public infrastructure.
