KanyiDaily had reported how Nigerian Soldiers opened fire on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate, killing about 15 people and injuring so many others on Tuesday night, October 21, 2020.
On Sunday, October 25, Fashola and some governors from the south-west, went on an inspection tour in the company of newsmen at the Lekki shooting site.
It was during the tour that Fashola found the mystery camera which he picked up with a handkerchief and handed it over to the governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Speaking with newsmen, Fashola said the camera must have been planted by some subversive elements priory to the reported shootings for ulterior motives.
“I think this will help with the ongoing investigations into the shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate. It requires forensic analysis and could be used in the investigations to unravel the mystery surrounding the shootings at the Toll Gate, I believe,” Fashola added.

There have been confusions about who ordered the military to go and shoot the #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll Gate and deaths witnessed at the scene on Tuesday night.
Following the incident, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu said that there was no record of fatality in the shooting incident at Lekki Toll Gate.
The Nigerian Army had also denied deploying soldiers to the scene, adding that videos showing soldiers opening fire on the protesters were untrue as it was photoshopped.
However, a popular disck jockkey, DJ Switch, who streamed the Lekki shooting on her Instagram Live while it was happening, insisted that at least 15 persons were shot dead on the night while several others sustained injuries of varying degrees.
