#EndSARS: LCC video footage shows army sent 7 trucks to Lekki tollgate

NEWS DIGEST – A video footage of the Lekki shooting submitted to the Lagos judicial panel by the Lekki Concession Company shows the army sent seven trucks to the tollgate on the night the incident happened.

The video is currently being reviewed by the panel investigating alleged human rights violations by the disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS).

Soldiers reportedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters who had converged on the facility on October 20. But the army insists its men only fired blank bullets into the air to disperse the crowd.

But a CNN investigation indicted the army of firing live bullets directly into the crowd of protesters, reportedly killing some and wounding many.
