There have been ongoing protests in Nigeria over two weeks with citizens agitating for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, over flagrant disregard of their human right.

However, that took a grief-stricken turn in Lekki, Lagos state on Tuesday night as defenceless protesters were gunned down by soldiers, following an alleged order by the Lagos state government to security forces to crackdown on defaulters of a hastily imposed restriction.

The shooting led to the death of several people as many were also injured.

Security operatives had stormed the scene of the protest after the Lagos Government announced a 24-hour curfew and opened fire, with the intent to kill many people.

As many turned up to social media to share the Live video clips of the tragic incident, many people could be seen with various degrees of injuries. The scale of the damage could not be ascertained.

Reacting to the killings, All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, denied involvement in the attack.

The former Lagos State governor spoke on Wednesday morning in a telephone interview with Channels Television, as he condemned the action allegedly perpetrated by the Nigerian Army. He said;

“Why will they use live bullets?

“I will never, never be part of any carnage. I will never be part of that.”
