The commander of the 81 division of the Nigerian Army, Ibrahim Taiwo, made fresh revelations on alleged October 20 Lekki Tollgate shootings.
Testifying before the Lagos judicial panel set up to probe the incident, he said the Nigerian Army took live rounds to Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020, when #EndSARS protesters were dispersed after two weeks of converging on the place
Taiwo who was crossed examined by a senior advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Olumide Fusika said the live rounds were not used on protesters.
He said they were meant for the protection of the army team that was deployed to restore order in the state.
He added that while the soldiers who opened fire used blank bullets, their colleagues with live rounds were on ground to protect from suspected hoodlums who fomented trouble
