Oyogist.com has learnt that a journalist, identified as Fisayo Soyombo took to his official Twitter page to share some names and photos of protesters who survived October 20, 2020 Lekki Toll Gate shooting.
In the photos he shared, he specifically pointed out that one of the protesters identified as Joshua Ossai lost one of his leg as a result of the shooting but managed to crawl to Ikorodu, where a Good Samaritan nursed his wounds for two weeks.
“Some people died inside the water,” he was quoted as saying.
Two other victims, Joshua Samuel and Tunji Odeyemi were victims of the shootings.
“Joshua Samuel was close to dying. Shot in the back and losing a lot of blood, there were no guarantees of survival when he arrived at Reddington Lekki Hospital on Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase I, Lagos or when he was transferred to their headquarters on Idowu Martins Street, Victoria Island, because of a lack of bed space at the former. Yet, if he had passed on, Samuel would not have felt any “regret or disgrace”.
“Tunji Odeyemi was shot in the face. Damilola Adeniyi sustained a bullet wound to the head. Lucky Philemon’s right leg was amputated.
