He, however, said he is yet to confirm if the victim was injured during the Lekki Toll Gate attack by security operatives.

“Information reaching us now is that a life was lost at Reddington Hospital due to blunt force trauma to the head. It is an unfortunate and very sad loss. This is an isolated case. We are still investigating if he was a protester.”

The protests have spiralled out of control across the country after hoodlums hijacked the peaceful protests against police brutality.
