National leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, denies traveling to France over alleged abduction of son.
Bola Tinubu, yesterday, denied that he traveled to France amid the shooting of protesters by suspected soldiers in Lekki, Lagos. He also described reports about abduction of his son, Seyi Tinubu, in London as false news.
It was reported that, after the shooting of peaceful protesters, the former Bola Tinubu traveled to France. There were also reports that, his son was also abducted in London. Speaking with newsmen during a visit to Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Tinubu, who was accompanied by his son, said he is standing with people in this period of crisis. He further commiserated with the state governor over the civil unrest and destruction of lives and property in Lagos, especially the Lekki Toll Gate shooting.
The APC chieftain, who condemned the shooting at Lekki Toll Gate, berated youths for what he described as the failure to observe the curfew order of the state government. He added that those who sustained gunshot injuries should be questioned.
Tinubu, therefore, appealed to the youths to give peace a chance and desist from vandalizing private and public infrastructure across the state.
