The army chief of Nigeria, Tukur Buratai has dismissed claims that armed soldiers shot and killed people who were protesting against police brutalities at the Lekki toll gate.
According to the Army Chief, some people were seeing double – a reason why they saw dead people but there was actually no dead body at the venue.
Buratai made this remarks during the decoration of 39 generals in Nigeria. Below are his words.
“I am glad that we held the Spiritual Warfare Seminar on Wednesday and most of the decorated generals today are graduates of the seminar,” he said.
I must say that the spiritual warfare seminar we had last time helped us during the last #EndSARS protest to the extent that there was no single corpse, but some persons were seeing double at Lekki toll gate in Lagos state.
We will continue to protect every law abiding Nigerian anywhere in the country and we will do that in accordance with the rules of engagement and confines of the constitution.”
