Lekki shooting: Blood of dead Nigerians crying for justice – Oby Ezekwesili tells Buhari

Oby Ezekwesili, a former presidential aspirant, has told President Muhammadu Buhari 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.

She tweeted: “It is 7 days since that #BlackTuesday of #LekkiTollGateProtest where @HQNigerianArmy shot our unarmed #EndSARS protesters.

“The Blood of the dead citizens is crying for Justice, @MBuhari.”

DAILY POST recalls that this is coming after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State finally said the Nigerian Army ordered the shooting of End SARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate last Tuesday.

Speaking to CNN on Monday, Sanwo-Olu said footage available to him shows that the Nigerian Army ordered the shooting.

But, the Nigerian Army had earlier denied the presence of its soldiers at the scene of the incident.

The Nigerian Army also said that viral videos of the shooting were “photoshopped.”
