#EndSARS: “I felt I was going to die there” – Ephraim Narrates

British-Nigerian activist, Ephraim, has indicated that, he felt he was going to die during the Lekki Toll Gate shooting on October 20th, 2020.

The Nigerian made these revelations when he narrated his experience on the incident in an interview with the BBC’s Mayeni Jone.

Originally from London, Ephraim, witnessed the shooting at the Lekki Toll Bridge on Tuesday 20th October, after taking part in the End SARS protests upon returning to Nigeria to start a business.

He said to BBC: “After seeing bodies being throwing into the truck, I felt I was going to die there.”

According to him, children were also shot at the Lekki toll gate, and further alleged that, a boy who could not have been more than 13 had his hand blown off.

He indicated that, growing up, he was accustomed hearing that, the youth are the leaders of tomorrow. However, it baffles him to see the same faces leading the country for years.

His interview with BBC comes on the back of a shooting incident that took place at Lekki Toll Gate after the Nigerian armed forces allegedly shot at peaceful anti-police brutality protesters in Lagos some 10 days ago.
