The Nigerian Army General, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo has alleged that Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu invited them during the #End SARS in Lagos to avoid total anarchy.
Gen. Taiwo is the Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island.
Taiwo spoke on Saturday when he appeared before the Lagos State Judicial Panel on #EndSARS.
The Judicial Panel is also probing the #Lekki toll plaza shooting by Nigerian Army on October 20, 2020.
Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, who is the senior officer, reminded Nigerians that the situation in Lagos had gotten out of control before they interfered.
Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo cited the burning of stations, killing of police officers, and looting of armouries.
Ahmed Taiwo recalled that it got to a point where hoodlums blocked several roads and extorted citizens.
He showed the panel a video of how a mob killed someone, set the body on fire and discussed sharing the body parts.
Ahmed Taiwo also noted that the scenes were like that of the Liberian Civil War “when the fighters believed that once they consume the human body, they would be fortified”.
“It was these incidents that made the Governor of Lagos State ask for military intervention, and in my opinion, that was the correct thing to do since the police had been overrun and policemen were fighting for their dear lives.”
