John Enenche, retired Major-General of the Nigerian Army, has responded to public outcry against his appointment on the presidential campaign council of the Labour Party due to his role in the 2020 Lekki Tollgate Massacre.

In a press release addressed to Nigerians on Friday, Enenche reiterated his support for Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and went on to explain his comments on the 2020 Lekki Toll Gate massacre.

“Dear country men and women, following my appointment on the campaign council of the Labour Party, there were reactions on social media about my pronouncement concerning a video shot at the scene of the ENDSARS incident at Lekki toll gate on 20 October 2020,” he said.

“Every one that commented in any way was right based on the information at their disposal and individual analysis. Personally and professionally, I worked with the overriding interest of Nigerians at heart based on the oath of allegiance I swore on commission into the military service which is sacrosanct.

“I sincerely shared in the pains of that breaking news through social media as it were. On this note, I want to assure all that more effort will be put in, so that all assertions can be cleared convincingly from appropriate sources.”
