#EndSARS: Military didn’t fire live bullets at protesters at Lekki toll gate – UK-based forensic expert



A United Kingdom-based forensic expert, Dieye Willie-Harry, has denied claims that officers of the Nigerian Army shot at #EndSARS protesters with live high-velocity projectiles at the Lekki toll gate last October.

Speaking before the Lagos State judicial panel enquiry via Zoom on September 28, Willie-Harry said that from his investigation, he was “99.999% sure” that the bullets fired by the military were blank bullets.

He said the results of his forensic study showed that no live high-velocity projectiles were fired at the protesters at Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020 between the hours of 18.30 and 20.43 when the Army were on ground.

Willie-Harry, however, noted that live, military-grade ammunition, may have been fired at some point after the military had left, by persons yet to be identified.
