Protesters injured at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos on Tuesday evening have been rushed to the Reddington and Lagoon hospitals in the area.
An official of one of the hospitals told The PUNCH that no dead casualty was brought to the hospitals but many injured victims were currently being treated at both health facilities.
“They are many. I can’t count my fingers around them. We are currently treating them,” the official who did not want to be mentioned said.
Many hospitals in the area were said to have been treating wounded protesters for free since the attack.
Tragedy struck when security operatives made up of policemen and soldiers, in a bid to disperse #EndSARS protesters, reportedly opened fire on the teeming youths at the Lekki tollgate around 7pm.
