The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, said there is a possibility that the October 20 shooting of protesters in Lekki was done by hoodlums and not soldiers, and that investigation needs to be carried out to determine who shot the protesters.
Malam disclose this in a meeting with reporters in Abuja on Monday.
Malami said on Monday in a news conference that it would be pre-emptive to say that there has even been a shooting and that the possibility the act was done by hoodlums should be considered.
“You cannot rule out the possibility of perhaps hoodlums that set in to create a scene… could equally partake in the process,” Malami said.
