Military Soldiers opened fire at #EndSARS protesters gathered at the Lekki toll gate, thereby killing many with several others wounded.
Reports online revealed several protesters shot were been treated on the roadside by fellow protesters. In one video, a protester who was reportedly shot in the leg was being treated by protesters after bullets were removed.
In another gripping image, one of the protesters was seen covered in blood while the flag was used to reduce the bleeding apparently from an injury.
A curfew imposed by the Lagos State Government earlier in the day starting from 4pm but was later moved to 9pm. However, the protesters were defiant choosing to continue the peaceful protest until their demands are met.
However, former US Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and the Nigerian Army to stop the killing of young protesters in the country.
The wife of former US President, Bill Clinton, said, “I’m calling on @mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters. #StopNigeriaGovernment.”
Hilary’s message to President Buhari comes on the heels of shootings carried out by men of the Nigerian Army targeted at #EndSARS protesters who gathered for a peaceful demonstration at the Lekki toll plaza.
