Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has said the Nigerian Army lied that it was Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu that ordered them to Lekki toll gate, the scene where unarmed protesters were shot last week.
Kanu in a series of tweet said the Army acted on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Nobody should believe the Nigerian Army’s claim that it was Babajide Sanwo-Olu that ordered for soldiers to be brought to Lekki.
”It’s a brazen Lie. Since when did Governors become Army Commanders. Lekki Massacre was ordered by the Fulani Nigerian President and executed by a Fulanized Army,” he said.
The exiled IPOB leader urged junior officers to disobey illegal orders of their superiors.
”Dear junior officers & other ranks of the Nigerian Armed Forces: Under the Armed Forces Act, you’ve the right to disobey illegal orders of your superior officers. Being ordered by Nigerian Army to kill Nigerian youths is illegal. It’s a crime. Disobey it. Heavens won’t fall,” he added.
