Former senator, Dino Melaye has called for the exposure of those who ordered the “killing of Nigerians” as well as the soldiers who carried out the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate.

Recall that security operative in military uniform on Tuesday, Oct 20 shot at protesters at the toll gate after two weeks of  #EndSARS protests.

The military, on Tuesday, said that the Lagos State Government called in the soldiers but denied shooting or killing any protester. This statement comes a week after labelling the video placing soldiers on the scene of the incident as false.
