But not all went well with the protest as many alleged that authorities used security officers and killed innocent protesters at Lekki Tollgate on 20th October, 2020. The Lekki massacre has shocked many people both here in Nigeria and abroad.

Government on their part have denied such allegations and maintained that security operatives did not shoot anybody in Lekki on that day. The Lekki massacre was what brought an abrupt end to the peaceful EndSARS protest.

The Lekki massacre has indeed divided Nigerians as some believe that the alleged massacre did actually happened. While Others are of the believe that the alleged massacre did not actually happened, that it was just a lie been perpetrated by some mischevious elements.

The argument put forward by the people that did not believe that the massacre happened, was that no credible evidence has been presented, that confirmed that the massacre did actually happened.
