The Minister for Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, on Sunday, discovered a hidden camera at the Lekki Toll Gate, Admiralty Circle, Lagos, during an on the spot assessment.

Fashola, who led a Federal Government delegation at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari to commiserate with the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the loss of lives and destruction of public and private assets in the violence that rocked the state last week, noted that words are not enough to describe the level of destruction wreaked by the arsonists.

Fashola who discovered the camera during an on the spot assessment at the Lekki Toll Gate, subsequently, handed it over to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for forensic analysis and further investigation.

The former Lagos State Governor said the camera must have been planted by some subversive elements prior to the reported shootings for ulterior motives.

While handing over the camera to Sanwo-Olu after picking it up with the aid of a handkerchief, Fashola said, “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.”

However, some Nigerians have expressed reservations over the discovery. They believe it’s just an act put up by government officials to cover up for the shooting incident at the Lekki Tollgate.

A Twitter user Editi Effiong said the minister thinks we are stupid.

Another Twitter user believes that this is part of the plan to doctor the video of the events that happened that night.

Olanrewaju found it strange that Fashola could discover the mysterious camera days after the cleaning up of the location by LAWMA, who didn’t discover anything.

    I think we are still allowing our emotions to get a part of us. Nigeria media (both self and social) allowing themselves to be distracted. That camera is too obvious to be planted at that scene. Be focus on the issue. That camera cannot be admitted during the judicial preceding. Because the scene has been cleaned up.

    Its extremely difficult to say what was discovered was not a ploy for further cover up, because Fasola led group are not the first of delegate that attended and inspected it, how come hes now discovering what others had not.Could this be a trap or a political expediency

    It’s not only an insult on Nigerians that Fashola suddenly discovered a spurious camcorder, but for him to be so sure it’s a subversive element reveals the ploy. Guy’s a big disappointment.

    For God’s sake, Oga Fashola you didn’t feel anyhow to tell Nigerians that you discovered, found and picked a some sort of secret camera after the entire place was cleaned for two days? So all evidence is now on this your camera?

    Babatunde don’t spoil the admirable general moral you have been preserving even beyond Lagos territory, with this political game.
    This is a digital world, the analogue world of political game wheels have past far far. Be careful boss. You people should just apologize and re- strategize policies,if Possible people can still have interest in the party.

    Fashola is not stupid but his generations born and unborn pray for death and will not find it. So also the president buhari and his generations, the senators and their generations. You have not seen anything when the second wave comes soon. All of you will be headed like it was done in Liberia. Useless government.

    You may be able to fool some people sometimes but you can’t fool everyone all the time. Nigerians are not daft. We are not stupid as those in government think. When did Fashola become an investigator to discover hidden camera. Judgment day is coming.

    This is a game of mind, that’s what they are trying to play… They will say fashola found the camera and they investigated and found out that those in the military uniforms weren’t Nigerian Military personnel’s or they will want to impose fashola on the people as their next “PRESIDENTIAL” aspirant


    October 27, 2020 at 6:15 am

    Fasola and the rest of his co- conspirators to turn the table around on their stupidly rushed decision to kill now think suddenly they found a hidden camera wao wao Fasola step back if not the blood of those that the lagos install governor killed will be on your head and your generation let him carry his curse not you step back and STOP LYING PLEASE.

    Who is fooling who here? Cover up designed by evil men. He hasn’t got the right to pick such camera if he hasn’t got clues. Only forensic police has the right to pick such camera. These old fashioned politicians in Nigeria will never repent.
    Has any Nigerian politician ever resigned of allegation? Fake enquiries.

    1. A camera that the fire did not destroy.
    2. A camera that the stampede and commotion did not damage or remove from position.
    3. A camera that the cleanup crew did not discover.
    4. A camera that waited for the dishonourable minister to find.

    And the minister came prepared with a handkerchief.

    The impunity of some people.

    When such leaders think of well-thought lies, it means that they respect us a little but when they tell such stupid, unbelievable, childish, silly and unsolicited lies it means that have neither respect nor regard for the people.
