He said, ” We never ever tempered with the surveillance camera until about 8 pm, when it was tampered with and stopped recording, the network was interfered with which stopped the recording”.

” The cameras that were removed at the Lekki toll gate were plate numbers recognition cameras, they identify the vehicle, and vehicle type,” Omomuwasi said
