National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and Former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said he didn’t want any blood shed hence the reason why no security operatives was present when the “attackers” razed The Nation Newspaper and Television Continental .
He disclosed this in a statement on Sunday titled, ‘The #EndSARS protests; a fundamental lesson in democratic governance’.
He said, “On the other hand, I am, indeed, a promoter and financial investor in the Nation newspaper and TVC. It was widely known and circulated through social media that certain malevolent elements were going to take advantage of the situation to attack the Nation newspaper facilities and TVC in Lagos.
“The attackers came. Both facilities were significantly damaged. Although equipped with prior notice of the imminent trespass, I did not call anyone to seek or request for the army or police to deploy let alone attack, kill, or injure those who razed and vandalized these properties. I did not want any bloodshed.
