Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Burutai, has averred that nobody was killed during the brutal shooting of unarmed #EndSARS protesters on October 20 at Lekki toll gate in Lagos State.
Buratai said this during the decoration of 39 newly promoted Major Generals on Friday, December 4 in Abuja.
He maintained that there was no corpse following the shooting incident, stressing that those claiming protesters were killed did not see correctly.
I am glad that we held the Spiritual Warfare Seminar on Wednesday and most of the decorated Generals today are graduates of the Spiritual Warfare Seminar.
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.
Several protesters demonstrating who called for an end to police brutality were reported killed by soldiers at the tollgate.
Popular Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, better known as DJ Switch, who was at the scene of the shooting, alleged that soldiers shot people dead and carted away some corpse.
