Lekki tollgate shooting – The Lagos State Government’s #EndSARS inquiry team has found four bullet holes at the Lekki Tollgate, where the October 20 incident took place.

Amnesty International has claimed that the military and police opened fire on unarmed protesters and that some protesters have been killed and many more injured.

The committee’s visit to the venue is part of its responsibility into the investigation of police brutality. Police and the military have denied allegations leveled against them by Amnesty International.

The chairman of Lekki Concession Company, LCC, which manages Lekki Tollgate, Abayomi Omomuwasan, escorted the members around, where one of the committee members, Rinu, found two bullet casings at the scene of the Lekki tollgate shooting.

Abayomi also commented on how the shooting destroyed the company’s assets there.

He said, “It is rumored that the cameras are out there, which is not true, because the camera is still there.

“The whole thing was left untouched by the camera, which was in the hands of the suspects, who could not leave without the guidance of their lawyer.

“But when the commission visited the military hospital on Friday for the continuation of its investigation into shooting of protesters at Lekki Tollgate, the military guards at the hospital’s lobby did not allow them to enter at all.”

Lawyer Onagoruwa, one of the councilors, said the military knew what they were doing as they refused to allow them enter the hospital.
