Lagosians near the Lekki Toll Gate have complained that, nearly 12 hours since Nigerian soldiers opened fire on peaceful #EndSARS protesters, they are still hearing gunshots from these security operatives.
Speaking with TheLagosToday, a resident in the Lekki Phase 1 axis, Margaret Oduwole, said “I am still hearing gunshots. It’s sounding much closer to my street now. I’m close to Admiralty way.”
Another resident, Wathoni Anyasi, confirmed to still be hearing the gunshots clearly, as at the time of filing this report.
A protester, Obianuju Udeh, popularly known as DJ Switch, who also witnessed the Tuesday night massacre, shared video footage on her Instagram live, revealing people who were wounded from this early morning’s shooting.
She said, “It is morning. We are wearing the same clothes. We are same out at different day, from last night (sic). They are not even shooting up into the air; they are shooting stray bullets at us. They (soldiers) are positioned by the side of the Lekki-Epe expressway, and we are taking some of the (wounded protesters) guys to the hospital right now. We need support.”
Successive gunshots could also be heard from the live video footage being streamed from Udeh’s Instagram account.
Recall that 7 people were killed last night by soldiers of the Nigerian Army as they sat at the Lekki Toll Gate protesting against police brutality in the state.
Tens of others were rushed to nearby hospitals in the area where they are currently being treated for free.Follow us on social media
