British-Nigerian activist Ephraim recently talked to BBC about his experience of the October 20 incident in Lagos when men of the Nigerian military opened fire on #ENDSARS protesters camping at the Lekki Tollgate.

Ephraim who grew up in London but recently moved to Nigeria to start a business took part in the #ENDSARS protests when Nigerian youths gathered in their numbers to agitate for the scrapping of a notorious police unit called SARS.

Ephraim was at the Lekki Tollgate when the military opened fire on peaceful protesters on Tuesday night, October 20, 2020.

Ephraim told the BBC that he felt he was going to die at that moment.

He said:

“After seeing bodies being thrown into the truck, I felt I was going to die there.”

Ephraim said he was at the Lekki toll plaza when the shooting started. He said some of the victims were children. He said a particular boy who could not have been more than 13 had his hand blown off.
