Lekki toll gate shootings: What really happened? - BBC Africa

  • | BBC Africa
    The youth of Nigeria found their voice in 2020 with the rise of the #EndSARS protests against police brutality. Nicknamed the "Soro Soke" generation - which means "speak up" in Yoruba - they took to the streets across the country for almost two weeks, calling for change. That ended abruptly on 20 October when the army opened fire on peaceful protesters in a wealthy suburb of Lagos. The BBC's Nigeria Correspondent Mayeni Jones investigates what happened that night and the climate of fear that has followed the shootings at Lekki toll gate.
