Dr. Oby Ezekwesili :

Former Nigeria’s Minister of Education, and Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) presidential aspirant, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has said that the blood of the dead Nigerians, who were shot during the #End SARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos State are crying for justice.

Ezekwesili stated this in a tweet via her Twitter handle on Tuesday morning.

“It is  days since that Black Tuesday of Lekki Toll Gate Protest where Nigerian Army shot our unarmed #EndSARS protesters.”

“The blood of the dead citizens is crying for justice.”

“Nigerian  women arise ! Today marks  days since Lekki massacre when the order of Buhari, Nigerian Army opened fire on our young #EndSARS protesters. Remember it is Black Tuesday.”

In a related story, Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says footage from the Lekki Toll Gate reveals that the men of the Nigerian Army are responsible for the shooting of peaceful #EndSARS demonstrators.

“From the footage we could see because there are cameras that are at that facility, it seems to be that they would be men in uniform, they should be Nigerian Army or something,” the governor told International broadcast station CNN.

When pressed further the governor said “it was military officers who fired gunshots at peaceful protesters, I mean they were there and that’s what the footage shows.”

The Lagos state governors’ comments came less than 24-hours after human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria Femi Falana told ARISE News that a group he oversees Alliance on Surviving COVID-19 And Beyond (ASCAB) had identified the barracks where officers of the military who shot protesters at the Lagos Lekki Toll Plaza proceeded from.

“We have already identified the barracks where the soldiers left for Lekki, we have already identified the barracks,” said Falana on Monday.
