Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has finally reacted to the shooting of unarmed and peaceful endSARS protesters by soldiers at Lekki, Lagos State on Tuesday, October 20.

The tweet he posted on his handle, @ProfOsinbajo read, “My heart goes out to all the victims of the Lekki shootings, and also the policemen and all other men and women who lost their lives in the past few days in different parts of Lagos and other states.
“I spoke to some of those in the hospital. The pain of these terrible events is palpable in our towns and cities, and some losses are irreplaceable, but we can and will get justice for all of them. I stand with Lagos and all other affected states in these trying times.
“We pray we will never see a repeat of these tragedies in Jesus name. God bless you all. – YO”
