An unconfirmed number of persons have been reportedly killed after security operatives opened fire on peaceful #ENDSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate area of Lagos on Tuesday night.
Scenes of protesters removing a bullet from victims were broadcast in a live video on Instagram by DJ Switch, a popular disc jockey.
Gunfire and sirens could be heard in videos filmed near the toll gate.
