The Nigerian Army has denied any involvement in Tuesday evening’s shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Plaza area of Lagos State.
However, the Nigerian Army described the reports as “Fake News” and stated that none of its officers were at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday.
A brief response from the Nigerian Army read: “No soldiers were at the scene.”
However, as the Nigerian Army denies involvement, 28 people have been confirmed injured.
10 patients are currently at the General Hospital in Lagos while 11 are at Reddington and four at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while two are receiving intensive medical care.
Three persons have been discharged.
