Four persons have been confirmed dead and many others injured as security operatives opened fire on unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate area of Lagos.
Recall NaijaNews reported that security officials on Tuesday evening reportedly opened fire on peaceful protesters that overstayed the 4pm curfew declared by the Lagos State government.
It was reported that before the shooting began, the floodlights that lighted up the area went off, throwing the area into darkness.
It will be recalled that some earlier reports had it that some men visited the toll gate and cut off all the security cameras in the place.
The government had drafted in armed security personnel to dislodge peaceful #EndSARS demonstators, who were demanding an end to police brutality and state repression.
Currently, there is tension in the area even as protesters vow to stand their ground to continue the agitation.
Earlier on Tuesday, Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, imposed an indefinite round the clock curfew in a desperate move to get protesters out of the streets.
