#SanwoMustGo: Nigerians on Twitter demand Sanwo-Olu’s resignation


Death of APC Treasurer, big loss to me - Sanwo-Olu

In the wake of the violence ongoing in Lagos State, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to call for the resignation of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

This comes after a number of unarmed #EndSARS protesters were attacked by security operatives in military uniform at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos on  Tuesday night.

While there were reports of about eight deaths and scores of injured protesters, the governor in a live address on Wednesday denied the reports that any life was lost as a result of the attack by soldiers.

He earlier blamed forces beyond his control for the shotting at Lekki in a tweet in the early hours of Wednesday.

This is the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history, but we will face it and come out stronger.

“I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki,” he said.

Reacting to the unrest across the state, Nigerians appeared to have run out of patience with the government of Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
