At Least One Killed In Surulere #EndSARS Protest
One person has been reported killed in the Surulere area of Lagos State on Friday in the ongoing protest against police brutality and extra-judicial killings.
According to eyewitnesses, the victim was hit by a bullet after the police officers shot indiscriminately to disperse the protesters.
Efforts by the medical team at the scene of the protest to resuscitate him proved abortive as he died at the scene.
Another protester was shot in the leg and quickly rushed to the hospital.
Although the police are yet to confirm the incident, numerous videos have emerged showing sporadic shootings with the protesters scampering for safety.
The protesters have earlier blocked the entrances of the Murtala Muhammed Airport and National Stadium Surulere in a bid to express their grievances against police brutality.
They also blocked the Murtala Muhammed Access Plaza displaying placards with various inscriptions, thereby causing obstruction of movement and delayed vehicles from accessing the airport.
