The mother of one Anthony, one of the victims of the shooting allegedly done by Soldiers on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos, is in grief over the circumstances surrounding her son’s death.

Recall that on Tuesday, Soldiers had opened fire on the protesters and not less than six persons were alleged to have been killed in the process.

Although, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu,  had initially declared that there were no deaths recorded, he later confirmed that three people died, as against the huge figures quoted by eyewitnesses at the scene of the incident.

A footage has emerged on Instagram showing Anthony’s grieving mother, speaking on the circumstances that surrounded her son’s death.

She said, “It has not been easy, I never knew that Anthony has so many friends like this. First of all, I want to thank his friends, who picked him up when he was shot; if it wasn’t for his friends, maybe the soldiers who picked up other corpses would have picked him up and say nobody died

Those children saw when Anthony was running with gunshot wounds; they stayed with him; some of them fell under vehicles; a lot of things went on.

When the Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said, “I can’t react to the Lekki tollgate issue because there is a panel on that. The panel is in the best position to react to any issue that concerns the Lekki tollgate incident.”
