Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Works and Housing, says he has no idea what happened to the video camera he found at the Lekki toll gate after the #EndSARS protests in October 2020.

Fashola, who was part of a delegation that included ministers, federal and state legislators, and state governors, knelt to delicately pick up the camcoder from a charred toll gate with a piece of cloth.

He then delivered the camera to an official, who placed it in a bag.

All of this was caught on tape by television crews.

The news drew numerous reactions on social media, with footage showing Fashola wandering around the scene before kneeling to pick up the camera becoming meme material for weeks.

When asked what happened to the camera on AriseTV, Fashola said: “You should not be asking me. You have the tapes showing that I handed it over to the government of Lagos, so you have all the recordings.”

TheCable was present for the interview.

“I think your people were there. So don’t ask me what happened to the camera. I don’t know,” the minister added.

A Lagos State panel reviewing what happened before, during, and after the killing of unarmed, peaceful young demonstrators at the Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020, has yet to deliver its report.

From 2007 to 2015, Fashola was the Governor of Lagos.
