The chilling aftermath of the shooting of unarmed protesters by soldeirs continued Wednesday morning as unknown assailants set fire to the family houses of Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in Surulere and Lagos Island. Eyewitnesses told Lagos Times newspaper that Mr Sanwo-Olu’s relatives were seen fleeing the buildings as arsonists touched the buildings.

The public turned against Mr Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday after gory images of murdered unarmed protesters circulated across social media.

The anger towards the governor was exacerbated by his comments in a statewide morning broadcast where he claimed that no lives were lost in the Tuesday shootings and that the protest movement’s “leaderless” strategy had made it almost impossible to reach a peaceful solution. Mr Sanwo-Olu had earlier claimed that “dark forces” outside the state’s control were responsible for the shooting of several unarmed protesters across the state.
