The opposition party condemned the killing of citizens who were exercising their civil right at the Lekki Toll Gate.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Wednesday (today), urged President Muhammadu Buhari to take responsibility for the genocide that happened on Tuesday, October 20 in Lagos State.
PDP in a statement signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, charged the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Presidency to take responsibility for the shooting and reported killing of peaceful protesters by military operatives at the Lekki toll gate.
The opposition party said this in a statement signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that a well-structured response from the President as the number one citizen of the nation, would have calmed frayed nerves and averted the crisis rocking the country at the moment.
According to Ologbondiyan: “President Buhari is the Commander in Chief of the armed forces and the buck stops on his table.”
A part of the statement reads: “Our party is however shocked at President Buhari stance, particularly his inability to demonstrate the capacity for concerned, attentive and proactive governance and command structure, while the nation he presides over dangerously slides into anarchy.”
“A well-structured governance response from Mr President, as the father of the nation, would have calmed frayed nerves and averted the crisis, violence, deaths, destruction of property and the avoidable loses we are
witnessing today,” PDP reiterated.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has called on the protesters of End SARS to continue with the movement despite the killing of demonstrators.
