End SARS: No one was killed at Lekki toll gate – Gen Buratai


The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Burutai, allegedly said that nobody was killed during the End SARS protest at Lekki toll gate in Lagos State.

Buratai maintained that there was no corpse during the protest at Lekki toll gate shooting which led to the death of some EndSARS protesters on Tuesday, October 20.

Speaking at the decoration of 39 newly promoted Major Generals, yesterday in Abuja, Buratai stressed that those claiming protesters were killed were seeing double.

Buratai 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.”

 Despite several video and reports from the day of the shooting , the Army Chief states that nobody was killed and that the evidence provided by witness were false.

However, the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army had maintained that soldiers drafted to the scene didn’t kill any protester.
