The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has maintained that nobody was killed during the End SARS protest at Lekki toll gate in Lagos state.
The Army chief said this at the event of decoration of 39 newly promoted Major Generals, held Friday in Abuja.
Buratai said there was no corpse during the protest at Lekki toll gate and that those claiming protesters were killed were “seeing double.”
He said, “I am glad that we held the Spiritual Warfare Seminar on Wednesday and most of the decorated Generals today are graduates of the Spiritual Warfare Seminar.
“I must say that the Spiritual Warfare Seminar we had last time, helped us during the last EndSARS protest to the extent that there was no single corpse, but some persons were seeing double at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos State.”
According to reports, several protesters demonstrating at Lekki toll gate Lagos were killed by soldiers.
Popular Nigerian Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, also known as DJ Switch, had alleged that soldiers shot and killed some of the people protesting at Lekki toll gate.
However, the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army had maintained that soldiers drafted to the scene didn’t kill any protester.
