Major General John Enenche, a former defense spokesperson, has provided an explanation for his assertion that the shooting at the Lekki tollgate during the #EndSARS demonstration was a Photoshopped incident.

Eneche provided the justification in response to the uproar that followed the Labour Party’s placement of him on its list for the Presidential Campaign Council ahead of the 2023 election.

The uproar forced the party to issue a statement in which it pledged to examine and publish a new list prior to the council’s inauguration.

The retired general said in tweets posted on his official account, @EnenchejohnEne1, that he made the comment with the best interests of Nigerians at heart because it is what he pledged loyalty to when he was commissioned into the military.

Additionally, he asserted that everyone who made any kind of comment was correct in light of the knowledge they possessed and their own distinctive analyses.

He said;

“Recall I underscored the need for every conscience bound Nigerian, cutting across societal class to join in the current political exercise in the country towards electing credible, competent and capable leaders in 2023.

“In addition, I enjoined all to speak out and not to sit on the fence.

“Consequently, I made bold to openly and objectively support the candidature of HE Mr. Peter Obi and Dr. Yusuf Datti-Ahmed, without fear or contradiction. All based on my knowledge of the duo for about 17 years and 5 years respectively, that they can provide quality leadership for the Nation that will guarantee effective followership.

“This is what Nigeria needs now to overcome all the numerous challenges imposed on the citizenry in the last two decades.”
