#EndSARS: Army denies shooting at Lekki protesters

The Nigerian Army has denied several media reports that its men were responsible for the shooting of protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos where #EndSARS protesters had camped last night.

Debunking the reports, the army took to its official Twitter handle – @HQNigerianArmy – to describe them as fake.
It boldly wrote over “Fake News” and “No Soldiers were at the Scene” over pictures of such reports.
There was no other official statement rebutting the many accounts and social media footages of men dressed in army uniforms who were filmed allegedly shooting to disperse the protesters.
