The Minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola on Sunday, found a hidden camera at the scene of the shooting in the Lekki area of Lagos state.
Fashola made this discovery while making on-the-spot assessment of the place where #EndSARS protesters demonstrated for 13 days before they were forcefully dispersed.
On Tuesday, men in army uniform invaded the Lekki Toll Gate where the peaceful protesters were and opened fire on them. There has been a controversy over the number of those killed and the persons who sustained injuries.
Fashola was joined by a federal government delegation on the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari to commiserate with the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the loss of lives and destruction of properties in the violence that rocked the state last week.
It was during the visit that Fashola found the camera which he said must have been planted by “some subversive elements” priory to the reported shootings for ulterior motives. The minister, who picked up the camera with an aid of a handkerchief, subsequently, handed it over to Sanwo-Olu for forensic analysis and further investigation.
“I think this will help with the ongoing investigations into the shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate. It requires forensic analysis and could be used in the investigations to unravel the mystery surrounding the shootings at the Toll Gate, I believe,” he was quoted to have said.
It didn’t take long for people on social media to begin weighing on Fashola’s mystery discovery with many apparently finding it hard to believe after all that have trailed the shooting.
Fashola conveniently finds a Camera at the Toll Gate after LAWMA already cleaned the whole Crime scene.

It’s funny just when people tell you Sanwo Olu is trying…this other one is ok…Fashola is the savior…they remind you that we are on a film set and everyone is an actor 🤷🏾♂️

"It sat quietly on that block when I found it. The mystery camera which no one had seen. Not even the LAWMA officials that cleaned a few days ago. But like I always say, when you bring me to a crime scene, the evidence will reveal itself" – Fashola Holmes. (Circa 2020)

The Nigerian state is totally ridiculous in its modus operandi.
Fashola finished making a comment that resonated with me, and then stepped out to go discover hidden camera at the scene of major crime.
The confidence these people have in our presumed stupidity baffles me.

That Fashola video just shows that these people don’t even do much thinking when they want to lie. They just drop something, all the best to anyone who has a problem with it. 🤦🏿♂️🤦🏿♂️ what a country. How will people abroad take us serious when our leaders act in this manner?

Fashola can find a camera from nowhere but can't find stable power supply.
O God of creation, direct our noble cause.

Fashola really thinks we are stupid.

LAWMA cleaned the scene,
They never found secret camera.
Some private volunteer citizens also went to clean up the Lekki Toll Gate, they never found a secret camera.
Fashola leads a troop of clowns to the crime scene and suddenly secret camera appears.
Agent James Fashola 007.
