Armed soldiers fired live bullets and fireworks at thousands of #EndSARS protesters who gathered at Lekki toll gate inside Lagos, Nigeria.

Nigerians were still protesting after the government had declared the 24-hour curfew which started from 4 pm on Tuesday.

Around 6:45 pm there were shots fired at the protesters who were at the Lekki toll gate. Soldiers later formed a barrier around the protesters who were still around after the shots were fired.

Currently, at the time of the report there 12 people killed and ordered wounded from the opened fire by the soldiers.

Following this development, several celebrities including Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Idris Elba and others have joined in to voice out the call for the end of violence.



Our thoughts and prayers are with Nigeria in these difficult times.
