Following calls for his removal from Labour Party presidential campaign council, General John Enenche has sought to clarify his action in denying #LekkiTollGateMassacre during his time as Director of Defence Information.

In a statement released, Friday night said his actions as former military spokesman was guided by the “overriding interest of Nigerians at heart-based on the oath of allegiance I swore on commission into military service.

Enenche, in the heat of the 2020 #EndSARS #LekkiTollGateMassacre controversy, made a statement that live footage broadcast by DJ Switch, a protester at the scene on that fateful night, was “photoshopped.”
Many #EndSARS protesters who are now the major drivers of the Peter Obi presidential campaign became agitated upon learning of Mr Enenche’s inclusion in their current cause.?

Enenche maintains that everyone who intervened on the vexed #LekkiTollGateMassacre issue did so based on information available to them.

“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 ENDARS incident at Lekki toll gate on 20 October 2020,” Enenche said.

“Everyone 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 military service which is sacrosanct. I sincerely shared in the pains of that breaking news through social media as it were,” he added.

Peter Obi has hinted that the concerns of his supporters would be addressed and all “omissions and erroneous entries” will be corrected by the party.

Enenche says he remained unflinching in his support for Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, his running mate, who he has known for 17 and five years respectively.
