The Oyingbo BRT bus terminal has been burnt down, as angry youths storm the streets following the massacre of peaceful protesters at Lekki last night.
The protests turned violent when soldiers opened fire on peaceful protesters at Lekki Toll Gate Plaza.
There have been ongoing protests in Nigeria over two weeks with citizens agitating for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, over flagrant disregard of their human right.
However, that took a grief-stricken turn in Lekki, Lagos state on Tuesday night as defenceless protesters were gunned down by soldiers, following an alleged order by the Lagos state government to security forces to crackdown on defaulters of a hastily imposed restriction.
The shooting led to the death of several people as many were also injured.
Security operatives had stormed the scene of the protest after the Lagos Government announced a 24-hour curfew and opened fire, with the intent to kill many people.
As many turned up to social media to share the Live video clips of the tragic incident, many people could be seen with various degrees of injuries. The scale of the damage could not be ascertained.
Today TVC headquarters was attacked, as the family home of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state, and a building of the Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA) in Lagos Island, got burnt.
Below is a video of the Oyingbo BRT bus terminal which was burnt down;
