Earlier, some government workers had allegedly removed the CCTV at the toll gate.
The state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had declared a 24-hour curfew, citing the violence that greeted the #EndSARS protest in the state.
Some of the protesters, who claimed that the timing was short, refused to vacate the protest ground.
A popular Disc Jockey, DJ Switch who is at the scene of the shooting, as at the time of filing this report, was streaming the incident live on her Instagram page, with many Nigerians tuning in to get live updates.
She stated that soldiers arrived en masse shooting sporadically at everyone at the toll gate and have seized some bodies of the deceased.
DJ Switch named the commander who gave order for the shooting as one Ifo Omata.
