Scores feared dead as security forces open fire on protesters at Lekki Toll Gate

Nigeria’s biggest city, Lagos, has been thrown into utter chaos as Nigerian security forces opened fire at unarmed #ENDSARS protesters camping at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.

With the security lights disabled, armed security officers shot sporadically at the unarmed protesters who were trapped in-between.

Over 10 have been reported dead and injured.

The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu earlier imposed a curfew following a spate of violence in some parts of the state as he warned the peaceful #ENDSARS protests have been hijacked by unruly thugs.

The 24-hour curfew which was earlier announced to begin from 4 pm was later moved to 9 pm following complaints about the short notice.

The Lekki Toll Gate shooting was reported to have begun around 7 pm, hours before the start of the curfew.
