Security officials on Tuesday evening have been reportedly opened fire on peaceful protesters for disregarding the 4pm curfew declared by the Lagos State government.
It was reported that before the shooting began, the floodlights that lighted up the area went off, throwing the area into darkness.
It will be recalled that some earlier reports had it that some men visited the toll gate and cut off all the security cameras in the place.
According to a Twitter user [Da_Rapstaman] who disclosed the incident, the men who cut off the cameras claimed they were sent by the government to do so.
Hours after, video reports on Twitter shows live bullets are being shot at protesters at the toll gate.
Watch the video.
