The management of Loatsad Promomedia Limited has said it turned off the billboard at the Lekki toll gate based on the state governor ’s curfew request .
The advert company is owned by Seyi Tinubu , one of the sons of All Progressives Congress chieftain , Bola Tinubu .
Nigerians had been outraged over the decision to turn off the billboard , which they claimed was part of the plot to attack protesters at the Lekki toll gate .
Eyewitnesses also claimed soldiers opened fire on # EndSARS protesters after the billboard was turned off on Tuesday evening .
But Loatsad Promomedia , in a statement on its Instagram handle , said it had no ulterior motive for the action .
The company said , “ When the ‘EndSars and ‘say no to police brutality’ protests started from day one , we wholly supported the movement and used all our platforms to promote the messages (I believe the promoters can verify this information ) as we believed in the cause .
