The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, on Friday, October 23, informed that President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered an investigation into the shooting of #EndSARS protesters in the Lekki area of Lagos.

 Dare, stated that the president would also speak on the shooting of the protesters after the probe panel has submitted its report on the matter even though the minister was silent on the composition of the panel and when it was inaugurated.

The Minister said: “For sure the president has ordered an investigation into the matter. He had a national security meeting (Thursday).

“I can tell you that this is already ongoing; because the president wants to have all the facts which will absolutely be made public.

“It is important to get all the facts right before we go forward. In this case, it’s going to be difficult to hide these facts because we live in a multimedia world; and we have pieces of evidence and corroboration. I think it is important to get the facts right.

“I think that’s the path the president has towed; and I am sure that when the facts are made available, this president – because he has integrity – will level with the Nigerian people about what happened on Tuesday in Lekki.”
