Bullet casings found at the EndSars protest site

 

Bullet casings were discovered by the Lagos State Judicial Panel at the Lekki Tollgate, where just over a week ago, Amnesty International said security forces opened fire on peaceful protesters killing and injuring a number of people.

Both the police and the military have rejected Amnesty's allegation.

Members of a judicial panel set up to investigate allegations of police brutality visited the site in the cadre of their investigation.

They were shown by the head of the Lekki concession center, who manages the gate.

Taking photos of where they found them, officials used paper to collect the envelopes.

They were also shown around the building burned down which houses the control room in charge of CCTV images.

The boss of the Lekki Concession Center said that despite rumors of their removal, the CCTV cameras were mounted.

The members of the group have required if some of the holes in the windows were in fact caused by bullets.
