A video currently circulating on social media shows an alleged sniper positioned atop a building close to the Lekki toll gate in Lagos state.
Nigerians on Wednesday, besieged the toll gate to embark on a memorial protest in honour of #EndSARS protesters who lost their lives during the Lekki shooting incident of October 20, 2020.
The Lagos state police command, few days ago had warned against the memorial protest, saying it would not hesitate to use all legal means to stop the protest from taking place following the experience of the last #EndSARS protests.
In a video which was posted online, some motorists driving on the toll gate appeared to have spotted someone believed to be a sniper as he laid atop a building watching events unfold.
They then called out to him, although he was too far to hear them.
