This newspaper earlier reported how security agents in military camouflage opened heavy fire on protesters at the Lekki toll gate, in Lagos State.



VOICE AIR MEDIA learnt that the streetlights were put off and the CCTV cameras removed before the security agents stormed the venue.


Witnesses also told this newsmen that the attack on unarmed protesters after the Lagos State Government imposed a curfew in Lagos, left at least seven people dead. 


The figures could rise with many other protesters injured from the shootings.



Multiple videos captured by citizens show the moment soldiers opened fire on the protesters, and the clips show terrified citizens crouching and screaming as gunshots rented the air.



The army has, however, labelled the reports false on all its verified social media accounts.



Several Nigerians at home and abroad have condemned the killings of Tuesday night, describing it as an act of wickedness against the unarmed protesters.



The nationwide(precisely, southwest states) #EndSARS protest, since it began about a fortnight ago. This newspaper has been reporting how protesters have staged peaceful demonstrations in major cities, demanding for the dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the police.



The protest led to the disbandment of SARS and the replacement with Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) squad. 


The federal government also promised to implement other demands of the protesters.


However, the protests still continued in major cities like Akure, Osogbo, Lagos, Ibadan, Ekiti and Abuja with hoodlums and security officials attacking the protesters in some of the cities.


The hoodlums broke into the Osun mall in Osogbo, looting valuable goods like, phones, laptop and gadgets from FEMTECH, and others shops in the Mall. Also, police stations were razed by the thugs in Lagos and Ibadan, VOICE AIR MEDIA reported.


These pockets of violence resulted in the declaration of curfew by the Edo, Lagos, Ekiti, Osun, Kwara, and Ondo governments.


Protesters have, however, remained defiant in the face of these restrictions, promising not to stop the demonstrations until all demands are met.
