African Action Congress Presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowere, has shared a video of the alleged moment the Divisional Police officer [DPO] of Maroko police division Lagos State, Ganiyu Raji, shot an ENDSARS protester at point blank range in October 2020.
Dockaysworld learnt that officer Raji is still living freely despite been fingered in extrajudicial killings and recommendations from the ENDSARS investigation panel to prosecute him.
During #EndSARS the Divisional @policeng_lagos Officer of Maroko Police station, Ganiyu Raji was accused of extra judicial killings, the #EndSARS panel in Lagos even recommended his prosecution. Today we obtained a video of the DPO (in white) shooting a protester on camera. Today, I met him with a group of Nigeria Police Force officers at Lekki Toll Gate still actively involved in attacking protesters #EndSARSMemorial
He also also revealed that officer Ganiyu Raji was present at the EndSARS Memorial March yesterday, 20th October 2022, where he allegedly still harassed innocent protesters.
In the video, a man, reportedly officer Ganiyu Raji, could be seen on a white native attire, approaching the surrounded protester who laid on the floor with his hand pistol and pulling the trigger at point blank range.
Nigerian have now began to clamor for an immediate re-investigation into the case against the officer and for justice to be served at all cost.
Till this day, the federal government and Lagos state government still maintain that no civilian was killed at the Lekki Tollgate during the EndSARS protest on October 20, 2020, despite multiple eyewitness reports and video evidence leveled against the Nigerian Army.
Dockaysworld reported a widow, whose son was an alleged victim of the EndSARS massacre in 2020, claiming that she has still not seen her son’s body 2 years after his unfortunate death.
We also reported an incidence of the Nigerian police, using tear gas canisters to disperse protesters at the EndSARS Memorial walk yesterday at the Lekki Tollgate Lagos state.
The Lagos police police immediately released a statement addressing the issue, claiming that tear gas was only used with the aim of preventing a breakdown of low and order, stating that they were no ‘fatalities’.
The force through its public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said;
Peaceful persons were allowed to move around without interference from the police. Some of them that decided to be lawless and start mounting the toll complex, an action threatening the existing law and order in the area, were dispersed with teargas.
There was no use of baton, neither was there physical contact. We equally do not have any record of shooting. We would, however, appreciate evidence of gunshots, maybe a video, to enable us take appropriate action.
