The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, has said he does not know where the video camera he recovered at Lekki Tollgate, in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests and shootings, is.

Fashola said this during an interview on Arise television, pointing out that he handed the camera to a Lagos State government official.

Recall that when he visited the scene of Lekki Shootings in October last year, he “found” a video camera and the event went viral.

Asked what became of the camera by Arise TV’s Ngozi Alaegbu, Fashola, a former governor of Lagos State, 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. I think your people were there.

“So don’t ask me what happened to the camera. I don’t know.”

On his seeming opposition to concession of assets by the Federal Government, the minister said he was making a point that the private sector was not a silver bullet that solved all problems.

He said: “They are a welcome partnership, but they are not a silver bullet alone in itself.”
