American Television channel, CNN has released its findings from an independent investigation carried out on the October 20 shooting.
The Nigerian youths had staged a protest to demand an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), extra-judicial killings and police brutality, which was tagged #EndSARS.
On October 20th, protesters gathered at the Lekki Toll Gate to press home their demands once again, but there has been mixed reportage to the events that occurred that night.
CNN, has however, conducted an independent investigation on the shooting and aired their findings.
They shared footage of what appears to be soldiers shooting at the #EndSARS protesters who had gathered at the tollgate.
The media house also reported that they’ve spoken with dozens of protesters who were at the scene when the shooting occurred. They claim the soldiers indeed fired shots at them.
CNN in its investigation spoke with a man, Elisha Sunday, whose brother, Victor, was murdered in cold blood during the October 20th shooting incident.
The media house also tracked the bullets shells seen at the Toll Gate and the companies that supplied the Nigerian Army Weapons since 2005.
