There were heavy gunshots at the Lekki toll gate, Lagos State, on Tuesday, as soldiers reportedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters.

An eyewitness, Samuel Ajani, reveals that one person was killed and several others injured.

According to him, they were all sitting on the floor when soldiers began to shoot.

Ajani noted that the shooting caused pandemonium as protesters scampered to safety.

Also, videos of continuous gunshots had gone viral on social media.

In one of the videos, a lifeless youth was seen on the floor.

The protesters in the video called for help, saying they were under heavy gunfire bombardment.

Earlier, some government workers had allegedly removed the CCTV at the toll gate.

The state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had declared a 24-hour curfew, citing the violence that greeted the #EndSARS protest in the state.

Some of the protesters, who claimed that the timing was short, refused to vacate the protest ground.
