Many people were injured when soldiers opened live ammunition on the # EndSARS protesters Tuesday night.
Despite public outcry and condemnations from foreign countries and international organisations , Buhari did not say anything about the shootings.
When asked about the silence of the president on Lekki shootings in his # EndSARS address , the minister said the president would speak after the outcome of a probe he had ordered .
He said , “ For sure the president has ordered an investigation, he had a national security meeting yesterday .
“ I can tell you that this is already ongoing because the president wants to have all the facts which will absolutely be made public .
“ It is important to get all the facts right before we go forward, in this case , it ’ s going to be difficult to hide these facts because we live in a multimedia world and we have pieces of evidence and corroboration and I think it is important to get the facts right .
