Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, is getting dragged on the internet for picking up a camera at the scene of the Lekki shooting of October 20, 2020.
The footage of the minister picking up the camera with all the care in the world, and with the aid of a black piece of cloth, has since gone viral.

@Ayobankole “The problem with having a President with sub par IQ in a country where everyone dances naked round the ruler is that everyone, including those who you thought were the smartest, will have to suspend their own IQ & operate at the level of the President. Just look at Fashola. 🤦🏾”
Please before they come out and lie about the camera they found, notice the direction the lens is facing and notice that the lens is closed. Meaning that that camera was not in use at the time it was dropped, not when it was picked

A few facts:
A Surveillance camera is mostly hidden.
It’s mostly not standalone.
Its connected to digital video recorder (DVR) which sends images to a closed circuit television (CCTV) or screen.
What Fashola picked is a camcorder.
Not security camera.
These guys are not smart.

Really sad that Fashola is part of this pantomime. Is there a politician in Nigeria that genuinely cares about the youth? #EndSARS
