- A new angle has emerged in the Lekki tollgate shooting saga
- In a new video, seven Army trucks were seen being driven to the Lekki tollgate protest area
- Meanwhile, Army has insisted that its men did not fire live bullets on protesters
In what will surprise many Nigerians given the fact that there have been several denials, video footage of the Lekki shooting shows the army sent seven trucks to the tollgate on the night the incident happened.
The video currently being reviewed by the Lagos judicial panel investigation.
It was submitted to the panel by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) which manages the tollgate.
Recall that soldiers were reported to have opened fire on #EndSARS protesters who had converged on the facility on October 20.
However, the army insists its men-only fired blank bullets into the air to disperse the crowd.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the federal government on Thursday, November 19, made a defence against the CNN report on the Lekki shooting, insisting that no "massacre" occurred as "irresponsibly" peddled on the social media.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that not under his watch will another EndSARS protest be staged by Nigerians as it happened in the month of October.
Speaking on Tuesday, November 17, during a quarterly meeting of the National Security Council (NSC), Buhari said he would not allow the repeat of the nationwide demonstration which led to the loss of lives and destruction of properties.
Muhammad Dingyadi, minister of police affairs, made this disclosure during a press briefing at the State House on the outcome of the meeting which was presided over by the president at the Presidential Villa.
