An eyewitness said

“I can see them from my balcony at the moment. Soldiers and policemen have arrived. I saw prisoners throwing stones and I saw fire.

“A lot of the prison officials have gathered at the entrance of the prison while some of the inmates have retreated.”

Gunshots could be heard from the prison.

This comes after scores of mob violence and reprisal attacks were reported in different parts of Nigeria and particularly Lagos State following the shooting and killing of unarmed peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki-VI toll gate by Nigerian soldiers.

Meanwhile, despite all the video evidence, the Nigerian Army has denied shooting at peaceful protesters.

While the Governor of Lagos State Sanwo-Olu said no fatality was recorded in the Lekki toll gate shooting.

For lying against the Nigerian youths, angry Lagosians stormed Sanwo-Olu’s family house in Lagos Island and burnt down the building. They also set his mothers building in Akerele Surulere on fire.
