European Union Statement

European Union has issued a statement concerning the shooting of protesters at the Lekki toll gate

Security operatives opened fire on unarmed End SARS protesters who were singing the National Anthem at the Lekki toll gate on the evening of 20 October 2020.

After the security cameras were removed from the toll gate and the toll gate lights were put off, the shooting came moments later.

Athough, the governor of Lagos State says there were no fatalities, but live videos from the scene and eyewitness accounts say otherwise.


Reacting to what is now being tagged the ”Lekki toll gate massacre,”  the European Union released a statement on its official website.


The statement which is from the European Union Vice-President Josep Borrell was tagged

“Nigeria : Statement by the High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell”

It reads :

“It is alarming to learn that several people have been killed and injured during the ongoing protests against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Nigeria.

“It is crucial that those responsible of abuses be brought to justice and held accountable.

“Following the Government’s will to deliver on reforms, we expect to see decisive implementation.”
