AI asks Nigeria authorities to stop attempts to cover up Lekki toll gate massacre


Amnesty International on Wednesday said Nigerian authorities still had many questions to answer on who ordered the use of lethal force on peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate.

The International Human Rights Watch in a post title new investigative timeline questioned why the CCTV cameras on the scene was dismantled in advance and who ordered electricity to be turned off minutes before the military opened fire on protesters?

The group further said the initial denials of the involvement of soldiers in the shooting were followed by the shameful denial of the loss of lives as a result of the military’s attack on the protests.

The international organization further said many people were still missing since the day of the incident, and credible evidence showed that the military prevented ambulances from reaching the severely injured in the aftermath.
