Following shooting of peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, with reports of casualties, ambulances and emergency workers that responded to calls were turned back by soldiers.
The driver of an ambulance driving away from the scene was heard telling someone, who was off camera, that military personal didn't allow them access to where the shot protesters were.
Vanguard had reported earlier that men in military uniform were shooting at the protesters, who had remained at the toll gate after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State had declared a 24-hour curfew.
A picture of Nigeria's flag stained with blood had since gone viral, with many people giving medical advice online on how to save the persons that had been shot.
The video had garnered over 70,000 views at the time of reporting, with over 3,00 retweets.
Below is the tweet:
