#Endsars: Nigerian Army Opens Up, Says ‘Lagos Govt Invited Us To Intervene’ But We Didn’t Open Fire On Civilians
The Nigerian Army says the Lagos state government invited it to intervene in the fallout of the #EndSARS protest.
The Army further disassociated itself from “a viral video on social media in which it was alleged that civilian protesters were massacred by soldiers at Lekki Toll Plaza”.
According to a statement issued by Acting Deputy Director Public Relations of 81 Division, Major Osona Olaniyi, “This allegation is untrue, unfounded and aimed at causing anarchy in the country.
“At no time did soldiers of the Nigerian Army open fire on any civilian.
From the onset of the ENDSARS protest, there was no time personnel of 81 Division Nigerian Army Lagos were involved,”‘ he said.
