Lekki Tollgate: Use Of ‘Massacre’ Highly Debatable, Baba-Ahmed Speaks On EndSARS Protest

Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has revealed that it is debatable to describe the shooting that took place at the Lekki Tollgate in October 2020 as a “massacre.”

The LP presidential Vice President candidate, who said that the incident was a violation of procedure and an abuse of human rights revealed this in an interview with the newsmen on Thursday.

When Baba-Ahmed was asked if he aligns with those who described and believe that the incident of that night in Lagos state was a massacre, he said, “There was abuse of human rights, there was abuse of procedure, if some people interpret those as massacre, then yes. However, massacre has different technical meanings, I can’t say I know all of it but I know massacre requires the assailants to have, first of all, no advance notice was given before the attack and the people, the victims must have been attacked in their own areas.

“These are well-meaning Nigerians, who brought themselves out and they were attacked by the security persons that are meant to be protecting their lives and properties. The use of massacre is highly debatable, but I can say for sure that yes, there were abuses of procedure and there were civil rights violations.”
