Several social media accounts reveal peaceful protesters are being shot at by the military at the Lekki toll gate holdout for the #EndSars protest.
Reports seen online indicate several protesters shot were been treated on the roadside by fellow protesters. Nairametrics cannot verify the authenticity of the videos.
However, in one video seen, a protester who was reportedly shot in the leg was being treated by protesters after bullets were removed.
In another gripping image that has perhaps captured the image of these protests, one of the protesters was seen covered in blood while the flag was used to reduce the bleeding apparently from an injury.
A curfew was imposed by the Lagos State Government earlier in the day starting from 4pm but was later moved to 9pm today. However, the protesters were defiant choosing to continue the protest until their demands are met.

The videos show protesters defiant as several rounds were being shot. The shooting came on the back of the protesters refusing to leave the Lekki toll gate after the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu declared a 24 hours curfew in the state from 4pm today.
