The Nigerian Army says it took live bullets to Lekki toll gate to disperse End SARS protesters on 20th October, 2020.

Commander of the 81 division, Ibrahim Taiwo, made this known while testifying before the judicial panel of Inquiry set up to probe the incident.

Taiwo while being cross examined by Olumide Fusika, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), said the live rounds were, however, not used on protesters.

The army commander said while the military men who opened fire used blank bullets, their colleagues with live rounds were on ground to protect them from suspected hoodlums.
