Discovery of a mystery camera at the Lekki Toll Gate, Admiralty Circle, in Lagos state on Sunday, October 25 by Minister for Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola have sparked reactions from many Nigerians.
Fashola, led a Federal Government delegation of South-West governors and ministers on the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari to commiserate with the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the loss of lives and destruction of properties in the violence that rocked the state last week.
Fashola who discovered the camera during an on the spot assessment at the Lekki Toll Gate, subsequently, handed it over to Sanwo-Olu for forensic analysis and further investigation.
He said the camera must have been planted by some subversive elements priory to the reported shootings for ulterior motives.
The minister, who picked up the camera with an aid of a handkerchief, handed it over to Sanwo-Olu, stating;
I think this will help with the ongoing investigations into the shootings at the Lekki Toll Gate.
It requires forensic analysis and could be used in the investigations to unravel the mystery surrounding the shootings at the Toll Gate, I believe.
However, many Nigerians have expressed reservations over the discovery. Some believe it’s just an act put up by government officials to cover up the Lekki tollgate shooting incident by producing a ‘fake video’ of what happened that night.
Other Nigerians found it strange that Fashola could discover the mysterious camera days after the cleaning up of the location by Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), who didn’t discover anything.

I had second hand embarrassment for Babatunde Raji Fashola last night.
APC turned my favorite person in the entire party to a moron in the name of pulling Sherlock Holmes.
I mean, that toll gate was cleaned by Lawma, and even Arise TV has a clip where ‘iron condemn’ cleared up

Lawma already cleaned up the whole place
Sanwo Olu already inspected the place but CIA agent Fashola just came from Abuja to unravel the mistery
These guys no rate us one bit!

Since Agent Fashola Reddington discovered the mysterious CCTV camera at Lekki Toll Gate, he should be deployed to Sambisa to uncover the perpetrators. A National Hero!

Fashola miraculously finding a camera at the Toll Gate and not being ashamed about it just goes to show how people in government see us, and it explains why they rule the government the way they do.
They think we are idiot and fools because you’d only try to pull this on a fool.

Fire raged and burnt everything
Soldiers came and left, Governor visited, Media visited, LAWMA swept the place
They found nothing
Suddenly! In a twinkle of an eye, Inspector Fashola found camera, even used cloth to pick it so as not to tamper with evidence

LAWMA cleaned the scene,
They never found secret camera.
Some private volunteer citizens also went to clean up the Lekki Toll Gate, they never found a secret camera.
Fashola leads a troop of clowns to the crime scene and suddenly secret camera appears.
Agent James Fashola 007.
