The United States Government may impose a visa restriction on persons found culpable in the shooting of unarmed # EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Plaza in Lagos on Tuesday .
This is just as the judicial panel set up by the Lagos State Government to probe the Lekki killings is set to begin investigation into the incident on Monday .
Soldiers deployed to quell the protests had opened fire on protesters . While the Defence headquarters has denied deploying soldiers in the Lekki Toll Plaza, Governor Babajide Sanwo- Olu insisted the military carried out the shooting on the peaceful protesters at the toll plaza.
The governor said , “ For clarity , it is imperative to explain that no sitting governor controls the rules of engagement of the military . I have , nonetheless , ordered an investigation into the rules of engagement adopted by men of the Nigerian Army that were deployed to the Lekki tollgate last night. ”
Although the casualty figure remains a subject of controversy , global rights group, Amnesty International , says 12 persons were killed in the incident.
