Popular Nigerian Table Shaker and self acclaimed Buhari Tormentor, Reno Omokri has again, alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari and former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai were responsible for the shooting and killings of peaceful protesters which happened at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos in 2020.

It would be recalled that in October 2020, Nigerian youths stormed the streets to protest against police brutality.

The protest later turned bloody after personnel of the Nigerian Army shot at and killed some protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos – the Nigerian government has continued to deny any killings.

However, in a post on Facebook, Omokri alleged that Buhari and Buratai were the masterminds of the dastard act.

Omokri, who was responding to the ongoing row between residents of Magodo Estate and the Lagos State Government, wrote:

The way and manner that police CSP disgraced and disobeyed Governor Jide Sanwoolu at Magodo today shows why we need state police. It should also open the eyes of those who claim Sanwoolu ordered the #LekkiMassacre of peaceful and unarmed #EndSARS protesters. If a Policeman can disobey him, how much more soldiers? Sanwoolu, the Pointer, was just a patsy. Buhari and Buratai are responsible for the #LekkiMassacre and they will go to prison after 2023.
