Did Lekki Tollgate Witness Another Shooting Yesterday? The True Account by Rebuker(m): 9:05am On Sep 22
Was there another shooting at Lekki Tollgate during the protests? The True Account of What Really Happened

This is an accurate account of what transpired at the tollgate yesterday during the peaceful walk and Candlelight vigil for Mohbad. As evening approached, the Nigerian police arrived, earnestly requesting the gathering of youths who had assembled in large numbers to pay their final respects to Mohbad and to stage a peaceful protest demanding justice for his death.

In addition, in the video footage, we could hear Dotun urging the protesters to disperse, signaling the end of the protest. Nevertheless, we cannot definitively state what occurred, but it is assumed that despite the police's pleas falling on deaf ears and some individuals refusing to leave the Lekki venue, this led the police to resort to using tear gas to disperse the mourners.

In a separate account, we discovered that the primary venue was supposed to be Muri Ovkunola Park, and people were instructed to relocate there.

However, as of the time of this report, we cannot confirm the report that the Nigerian police fired upon the protesters. In one of the scenes in the video, a loud sound resembling gunfire can be heard, causing people to scatter. Furthermore, a woman who went live on video claimed that the police fired tear gas at them, as can be seen in the footage. Given this, it is reasonable to assume that the sound heard may have been from tear gas.
