Under The Same Circumstance, We Will Repeat Our Action At Lekki Tollgate Anywhere In Nigeria – Army


The Nigerian Army has pronounced that it will repeat same action it took at the Lekki Toll Gate anywhere in the country if such a circumstance happen again.

The Commander of 81 Division of the Nigerian Army, Ibrahim Taiwo made this known on Saturday while testifying before the judicial panel the Lagos State Government instituted to investigate the occurrence.

On the night of 20 October, 2020, at about 6:50pm, men of the Nigerian Army shot live bullets on peaceful# EndSARS protesters at the toll gate, killing an unconfirmed number of people.

In spite of the evidence of people being killed and injured at the Lekki incident, the army had asserted that blank bullets were used on the demonstrators.


At the time he was being cross examined by Olumide Fusika, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Taiwo said given the same circumstance, the army would act in a matching way to that of October 20, 2020.


The commander reiterated that there was no shooting of live ammunition at protesters.
