Given The Same Circumstance, We Will Repeat What We Did In Lekki – Nigerian Army Declares
Soldiers had forcefully dispersed #EndSARS protesters who converged on the tollgate for 13 days.
The incident had triggered an outrage, within and outside the country.
When he appeared before the panel set up to probe the incident, on Saturday, Ibrahim Taiwo, commander of military intelligence, 81 division of the Nigerian Army, said given the same circumstance, the army would act in a similar to that of October 20, 2020.
Taiwo had earlier explained that phase four of the military internal security operation, which was deployed in the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20, 2020, involved the use of both live and blank ammunition.
“A portion of the force will carry live bullets, in case they are attacked. But the soldiers that formed the firing team, who fired, used blank bullets. And that is why you watched the video and saw exactly what happened,” he had said while being cross examined by Olumide Fusika, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN).
