This was disclosed by the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, while appearing as a guest on Arise TV.
In his words: “For sure, the President has ordered for an investigation. He had a National Security Meeting yesterday (Friday). I can tell you that this is ongoing already.
“The President wants to have the facts and that is going to be made public.
“It is going to be difficult to hide all these facts because we live in a multimedia world and we have evidence, collaborations, and all of that, and I think it is important to get the facts right.
“That is the path that the President has toed and I am sure that when these facts are made available, this President because he has integrity, will level with the Nigerian people about what happened on Tuesday in Lekki.”
