Ezekwesiri Outraged Over Lagos Government Debunking Mass Burials of EndSARS Victims 

Former Education Minister Oby Ezekwesiri commented on Lagos State's denial of mass burials of EndSARS victims.

Recall that the Lagos state government has refuted claims that it planned mass burials for the victims of the EndSARS massacre.

The government said the bodies to be buried were not recovered from the lekki toll station, but were recovered from various locations in the state during and after the protests.

They described those who broke the news of the funeral as "unscrupulous elements desperate to disturb the peace and tranquility of Lagos."

Ezekwesiri responded by accusing the Lagos State government of disrespecting Lagos residents.

She argued that it was disrespectful to say such words to people you voluntarily sought power to govern.

Speaking via Twitter, Ezekwesili wrote, “At least the @followlasg finally has a response for the public on this troubling confirmation that 103 citizens were killed during the #EndSARSMassacre .

“But, what manner of contrived response is this? Why this level of disrespect for the dignity of the lives of the people you voluntarily sought power to govern?

“How come it took the leak of @followlasg internal document titled Mass Burial of EndSARS victims for the @jidesanwoolu government to contrive this explanation on victims of that tragedy?

“This egregious response also comes almost 3 years since all reasonable citizens demanded @jidesanwoolu and @NigeriaGov @NGRPresident @Mbuhari @PoliceNG and @HQNigerianArmy to account for all that happened to citizens in the #EndSARSMassacre ?

“This cannot be the end of this saga. There is serious accountability required from our State and Federal Governments on #EndSARS and the CoViD19 palliativeGate.”
