The Federal Government of Nigeria has rejected a report given by Amnesty International concerning the Lekki Toll-Gate shootings.

Amnesty International is a human rights advocacy group. In other words they help to ensure that humans are not deprived of their human rights.

The group released a timeline which included when soldiers left a military facility called Bonny Camp, to the Lekki Toll-Gate where peaceful protesters gathered.

Country Director of the group, Osai Ojigbo, said it has a timeline that “collates photographs and video footage to confirm that Nigerian Army vehicles left Bonny Camp, a military base approximately a seven-minute drive from the toll gate, at 6.29 pm local time on 20 October.”

“Footage then tracks the vehicles to the toll gate. At approximately 6.45pm, the Nigerian military opened fire on the #EndSars protesters who were peacefully calling for an end to police brutality.”

“What happened at Lekki Toll Gate has all the traits of the Nigerian authorities’ pattern of a cover-up whenever their defence and security forces commit unlawful killings.”

The country Director also signed a statement tittled Nigeria which stated that “Authorities must stop attempts to cover-up Lekki Toll Gate massacre”.

However, the Nigerian Army has denied that it shot at the protesters, saying it was invited to enforce the state curfew given by the Lagos State Government.

The Federal Government has also debunked those claims and slammed the report as fake.

The question still remains… Who gave the order?
