Lekki shooting: CCTV reveals soldiers arrived in seven trucks

The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Judicial Inquiry probing the Lekki shooting, on Saturday resumed the viewing of a CCTV footage submitted by the Lekki Concession Company, operators of the tollgate.

The footage showed that the scene was calm until about 6.43pm when people could be seen running towards the tollgate from the Oriental Hotel end.

Two minutes later, at 6.45pm, military trucks with flashing headlights arrived the scene. There were no fewer than seven of them.

At 6.53pm, about 10 minutes after the arrival of the military vehicles, the tollgate went into a blackout.

Two minutes later, at 6.55pm, one of the military vehicles drove through the tollgate to the other end where the crowd of protesters was gathered.

In a recent CNN report, the army was accused of firing at, and killing, unarmed protesters. An Amnesty report also corroborates the CNN claims.

Soldiers reportedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters who had converged on the facility on October 20. But the army insists its men only fired blank bullets into the air to disperse the crowd.

But a CNN investigation indicted the army of firing live bullets directly into the crowd of protesters, reportedly killing some and wounding many.
