Lekki shootings: Sanwo-Olu visits wounded protesters at Lagos hospitals

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday morning visited protesters injured at the Lekki tollgate area on Tuesday evening.

He was at some of the hospitals where #EndSARS protesters rushed their injured after they were attacked by security forces.

With Sanwo-Olu on the visit was the deputy governor, Obafemi Hamzat, and other state officials as he gave an update:

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

“It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.

“There are currently 10 patients at the Gen Hospital, 11 at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care. 3 patients have been discharged & we will continue to monitor and ensure all patients get the best care.”

Many hospitals in the area were said to have been treating wounded protesters for free since the attack.
