#ENDSARS: WE WENT TO LEKKI TOLLGATE WITH LIVE BULLETS - NIGERIAN ARMY
The Nigerian Army has admitted that it went with live bullets to the Lekki tollgate on October 20 when #EndSARS protesters were shot at.
The Commander of the 81 division of the Nigerian Army, Ibrahim Taiwo, revealed this while testifying before the Lagos State judicial panel of enquiry setup to investigate cases of brutality by the recently disbanded SARS operatives.
The Commander, who said the live rounds bullets were not used on protesters, disclosed that they were meant for the protection of the army team that was deployed to restore order in the State.
He noted that while the soldiers who opened fire used blank bullets, their colleagues with live rounds did not shoot at anyone.
