There was an heartbreaking moment Yesterday when Nigerian soldiers shot live bullets into peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate and it was captured on video.There was chaos that evening at the Lekki protest ground after soldiers deployed to the venue opened fire on young Nigerians protesting against police brutality in the country.

The governor of Lagos state had earlier declared a curfew in the state. The curfew which was earlier scheduled for 4pm was later shifted to 9pm.

Protesters who gathered at the toll gate refused to evacuate the protest ground, despite the order by the state.

Some security operatives were then deployed to the spot to displace the protesters who stood their ground. Moments after arriving at the toll gate, the security operatives opened fire on the protesters to displace them.

No less than 15 people were shot dead and many others injured.

Consequently, all the cubicles of the toll gate were set on fire by suspected hoodlum.
