The Acting Managing Director of Lekki Concession Company, Mrs. Shakira Babatunde threw caution to the wind on Tuesday when she ordered the Chief Security Officer of the company to manhandle the crew of Silverbird Television while on official assignment.
The STV Crew had gone to report the meeting between the LCC and residents of Still water estate when the hoodlums believed to be workers and security personnels of LCC emerged from nowhere and descended on them.
As a matter of fact, it was the Acting Managing Director of LCC, Mrs Shakira Babatunde who ordered the Chief Security Officer of the company to bundle out the STV crew and seize their camera.
Members of the crew were assaulted.
Mrs. Babatunde's grouse was that the STV crew had no right to report the issues between the LCC and Stillwater estate.
It would be recalled that estate had been at loggerheads with LCC over the construction of a road from the estate down to Oando.
The residents said that the road is too close to the estate gate and will constitute health, safety and security hazards.
In the course of the harassment, the angry mobs from LCC seized the STV camera while members of the crew were publicly assaulted.
At present, the camera belonging to STV is still with the LCC and its hoodlums.
