The attack on a bus carrying journalists on Lagos Island on Sunday has prompted Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to order an investigation.
During the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu’s visit to the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu on Sunday, an attack occurred between Ebute-Ero and Adeniji, Iga-Iduganran.
Two people were hurt, and the vehicle that was transporting the journalist was vandalized. On Monday, June 20, Lagos Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, issued a press statement that read:
“Sanwo-Olu has directed also that those involved must be fished out and made to face the law. Besides, the government will pick up the hospital bills of those injured in the incident.
“Lagos State Government condemns the incident. We hold the media in high esteem and the government has always ensured that they have a conducive environment to perform their duties.
“Nobody or group will be allowed to destroy our cordial relationship with the media. Lagos has no room for hooligans.”
