Nigerian soldiers have been accused of murdering protesters at the Lekki toll gate yesterday.
A former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has accused the government of massacring #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Recall that soldiers opened fire on the protesters last night.
It was gathered that soldiers arrived at the sit-in protest venue two hours before a state-imposed curfew was billed to kick-off, and opened fire on the peaceful protesters.
The street lights were turned off and security cameras switched off before the shooting began.
Saraki, while describing the shooting incident as a massacre, called for great patience, restraint, and compassion in handling the demands of the youth.
According to him, the dialogue is the only logical option in the current situation— and not violence, adding that It was unacceptable for any Government to turn its weapons on its own young people.
