Amnesty International has called on the Nigerian authorities to stop trying to cover up the incident in Lekki, Lagos State, as it was alleged that the military opened fire on protesters.
In a statement, the group said it had a series of allegations, ranging from photos and videos of Nigerian military officers leaving a barracks in Bonny, just seven minutes away. the protesters gathered.
The group said cameras showed soldiers opening fire after arriving around 6:45 p.m.
“A week after the incident, there are still questions to be answered by the Nigerian authorities. Who ordered the use of force against the protesters? Why were the cameras removed from the scene?” “And who told the lights to be turned off just minutes before the protesters were fired?”
The group said there were still people missing and their whereabouts unknown.
It called on the authorities to punish those responsible and to protect the rights of protesters.
