Nigerians on social media have reacted to Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s denial that no life was lost at the Lekki Toll Gate massacre.
The governor had mentioned in his live press conference that there was no fatality at the Toll Gate shooting on the 20th of October, 2020.
According to Sanwo-Olu, the soldiers opened fire on #EndSARS peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate in a bid to disperse them.
He added that he is currently engaging the leadership of the Nigerian Army on the development, although the Nigerian army is denying reports on their Twitter page by writing “Fake News” on screenshots on news articles about them.
