Did you guys remember what happen on 20th of October 2020?


20:10:2020( Tuesday ) was a day that many Nigerians will never forget in Nigeria ūüá≥ūüá¨.¬†

      On the night of 20 October 2020, at about 6:50 p.m., members of the Nigerian Army opened fire on peaceful End SARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos State, Nigeria.[Amnesty International stated that at least 12 protesters were killed during the shooting. A day after the incident, on 21 October, the governor of Lagos State, BabajOlu Sanwo-Olu, initially denied reports of any loss of lives, but later admitted in an interview with a CNN journalist that "only two persons were killed".

   The Nigerian Army initially denied involvement in the shooting, but later stated that it had deployed soldiers to the toll gate on the orders of the governor of Lagos State. A month after the shooting, following a CNN documentary on the shooting, the Nigerian Army admitted to the Lagos Judiciary panel of inquiry into the shooting that it had deployed its personnel to the toll gate with both live and blank buts.

State Governor Babajide Sanwoolu claims two persons died while Amnesty International claims at least 12 people and DJ Switch (a witness to the event) claims at least 15 people died.
