Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of All Progressive Congress (APC), has denied having any kobo investment in the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), and as such has no dime in the funds generated at the Lekki Tollgate.
Bola Tinubu debunked the rumor that he was among those behind the shooting of unarmed protesters on Tuesday at the Lekki Tollgate, in a telephone interview with Channels Television in the early hours of Wednesday.
In response to a question on his interest in the Lekki Tollgate, the APC leader said, “I have no dime, no kobo investment in the tollgate”.
Tinubu also denied having any investment in the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), the firm which manages the tollgate.
I will never, never be part of any carnage. I will never be part of that.”
According to him, it was his intervention that pushed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to respond to the demands of the protesters.
He said, “That was why he (Sanwo-Olu) set up the Judicial Commission of Inquiry. The governor has gone to the home of one of the victims to appeal to them. He has put N200m together as part of restitution and compensation for those attacked.”
