It's been seven months now since that sad incident of Lekki killings happened, but the case seemed to have been swept under carpet after the military had claimed it only fired blank bullets.
However, the Lagos State judicial panel investigating the gunshot incident at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020, and the restitution for victims of SARS-related abuses resumed its investigation on Saturday, May 8.
At the resumed sitting, a medical doctor with the Grandville Medical Center in Lagos, Dr Aromolafe Ayobami, testified to having treated a total number of 15 patients referred from other hospitals with injuries ranging from gunshots to superficial wounds. The patients were reportedly wounded in the shooting incident at the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20 during the EndSARS rally.
The doctor said:
Similarly, one of the coordinators of the #ENDSARS protests, identified as Serah Ibrahim has presented fresh videos and photos to show the people allegedly shot dead or injured by the Nigerian Army at Lekki Tollgate.
The video played before the Lagos State Judicial Panel also showed that the soldiers shot at the blank air and it also seemed that they fired at the protesters.
In one of the videos, Ibrahim showed one of the hospitals where the injured victims were taken to.
He also claimed that the soldiers took away the bodies of some of the victims.Do you think the soldiers really fired at blank air?
Kindly share opinions in the comment section below. Thanks.
