The minister for Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, on Sunday, discovered a hidden camera at the Lekki tollgate.
Last week Tuesday was a day to remember for Nigeria as the #EndSARS protests turned violent after some soldiers reportedly stated shooting at peaceful protesters, resulting in deaths and injuries to many.
Fashola led a Federal government delegation to commiserate with Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the loss of lives and destruction of properties in the state. It was during this period the minister stated that he made this shocking discovery.
However, this discovery didn’t go down too well with some celebrities who played significant roles in the #EndSARS protests, and they’ve taken to social media to express their disappointment at the discovery and tagged it as a “film trick”.
Toolz wrote, “Really sad that Fashola is part of this pantomime. Is there a politician in Nigeria that genuinely cares about the youths? #EndSARS.”
PeterPSquare wrote, “These people really think we are daft and fools! Abeg, see people papa. What a shame and embarrassment! Look at where the camcorder lens of the camera is facing.”
Samklef tweeted, “I see a lot of people doing Fashola challenge and you want this government to take you guys serious? You all joke with everything. Shame. They know you will all forget soon. Keep following their script.”
Ice Prince wrote, “Somebody please tell me the Minister, Fashola and his guys running into a random camcorder at Lekki toll gate yesterday was a joke !!! Please, I’m begging anyone… Just say it’s a joke, Thought LAWMA just cleaned the whole place up and Jide (Governor Governor Sanwo-Olu) already did a tour!?”
Falz tweeted, “Secret camera you know… Must really think we are stupid! What kind of embarrassment is this? Like do these men actually think we are DAFT?”
