Nigerians react as President Buhari’s aide, Tolu Ogunlesi allegedly resigns amid #LekkiShooting outcry

Emerging reports suggest that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Digital and New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi has allegedly resigned.

Nigerians on Wednesday, took to micro-blogging platform, Twitter to reveal that the presidential aide resigned in the heat of the shooting of peaceful End SARS protesters which took place in Lekki, Lagos state last Tuesday.

Although, unconfirmed, Ogunlesi is said to have handed in his resignation letter on October 20, 2020, the day of the unfortunate shooting and killing of the protesters at the Lekki toll gate.

A check on his Twitter handle, showed the last time he was active, or tweeted/retweeted any post was on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

Nigerians have been commenting on the turn of events with some calling for him to be forgiven over his past defence of the Buhari-led administration, while others state otherwise.

I don’t believe the rumours, but even if true, resignation doesn’t absolve Tolu Ogunlesi from culpability.
