The Nigerian Army has denied being involved in the massacre of peaceful protesters that occurred on Tuesday evening at the Lekki Toll gate despite leaked footage from the unfortunate scene showing uniformed soldiers carry out the killings.
It will be recalled that men in military uniforms stormed the scene of the protest at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday evening and shot at many of them.
The Nigerian Army has now described the reports as “Fake News”, claiming that none of its officers were at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday.
A brief response from the Nigerian Army read: “No soldiers were at the scene.”
However, as the Nigerian Army denies involvement, 28 people have been confirmed injured.
10 patients are currently at the General Hospital in Lagos while 11 are at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care.
3 persons have been discharged.
