#EndSARS: Finally, gov’t will point accusing fingers to end the matter – Stella Damasus
Nollywood Actress, Stella Damasus has come heavily against the federal government’s style of handling and addressing the Lekki Tollgate shooting.
Damasus has been at the fore on her social tools mainly Instagram and Twitter concerning the youth’s movement, End SARS, declaring support.
As events unfold, the masses appears to be doubting the honesty of the governments in investigating the extrajudicial killing recorded in Lagos state and other major parts of the country both before and during the EndSARS protest.
Army’s continued inconsistent stance in ascertaining the involvement in the Lekki massacre may have given rise to a reaction by the movie producer.
We understand Nigeria’s army had earlier refuted reports insinuating that soldiers carried out the ugly but genocidal act, however, a separate statement acknowledged their involvement but based on the rule of engagement.
The army said the Lagos state government extended an invitation to them in view of arresting ‘violent coloured’ peaceful demonstration after the governor, Sanwo-olu declared 24 hours curfew.
In his part, the governor denied neither inviting the soldiers nor requested to shoot at the innocent protesters.
Reacting on Friday, Stella Damasus rhetorically noted that government will not admit but would rather, point accusing fingers till expected time elapsed, “They will point accusing fingers to other ppl as they are being accused till time will pass”
She additionally stated that both accused parties “will look for someone to take the fall just to end the matter”
