Nigerians Drag Fashola For Finding ‘Hidden’ Camera At Lekki Shooting

On Sunday, October 25, 2020, Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Works and Housing, on Sunday, found a camera at the scene of the shooting in Lekki, Lagos.

Ministers and governors from the south-west, made an on-the-spot assessment of some of the places vandalized during the violence that trailed the #EndSARS protest.

It was during the visit that Fashola found the camera which he said must have been planted by “some subversive elements.”

The minister reportedly picked up the device with a handkerchief and handed it over to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos.

Reactions to Fashola’s discovery at the Lekki shooting have been swift on Twitter, with many alleging that the discovery is a stunt to deceive Nigerians.

NECO Suspends Ongoing Examination Indefinitely

Curfew: NECO reschedules Oct 22, 23, 24 examinations till November

The National Examinations Council, NECO, announced Sunday, that it has suspended its ongoing internal Senior Secondary Schools Certificate Examinations, SSCE, indefinitely.

The council, in a statement by its Head, Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani explained that the action was taken by its governing board, following the current turn of events in the country.

It particularly attributed the action to the closure of schools and the curfew imposed by some state governors to safeguard lives following developments around the country.

The imposition of the curfew, according to NECO, has prevented free movement of materials meant for the examination.
