Nigerian singer, David Adeleke aka Davido has reacted to the recent detailed report by CNN on what happened at Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020.
On Wednesday, CNN released an investigative report on what happened during the Lekki shooting incident.
CNN’s report noted that they pieced together a timeline that shows that shooting by the army lasted from 6:43 p.m. until at least 8:24 p.m., according to video evidence.
The videos capturing some of those 101 minutes tell a story of terror and chaos. They show graphic injuries and people bleeding on the ground.
CNN also noted that they had spoken to some families who had lost their loved ones at the Lekki tollgate.
The report also noted that some injured protesters had been taken to the hospital after the Nigerian army opened fire on them.
CNN also examined bullet casings found at the Lekki toll gate and confirmed with current and former Nigerian military sources that the bullet casings match those used by the army.
Two ballistics experts have also confirmed with CNN that the shape of the bullet casings indicate they used live rounds, which contradicts the army’s claim they fired blanks.
Meanwhile, the army recently denied that anyone was taken to hospital with gunshot wounds and that they only shot into the air.
Speaking in front of the judicial panel, the army spokesman Brigadier Ahmed Taiwo also denied that anyone was shot at the Lekki toll gate.
When CNN contacted a Lagos State government spokesman about the findings of their investigation, the spokesperson declined to comment.
“Talking about that subject now will be sub-judicial since the matter is already before a panel of inquiry. Until the panel concludes its investigation, the subject will not be open to any discussion or comment by any State official,” the spokesperson said.
