The Nigerian army has finally agreed that they did bring live ammunition to the Lekki Toll Gate shooting after denying several times. 

The 81 Division of the Army, the formation involved in the October 20, 2020 Lekki shooting revealed this at the Lagos judicial panel. 

Ibrahim Taiwo, Commander of the division, disclosed this on Saturday, November 21, while testifying before the panel the Lagos State Government set up to probe the incident.

While being cross-examined by Olumide Fusika, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Taiwo insisted that no one was shot dead as soldiers only fired blank ammunition at the protesters and not live rounds.

“The soldiers they were both given both live and blank bullets. In this particular case, we saw that these protests had been infiltrated by some hoodlums.

You had peaceful protesters no doubt. But there were also hoodlums who sought to take advantage. That is why they were armed [with] blank bullets in addition to the live [bullets] they were carrying,” he said.
