Men of the Nigerian Police Force have allegedly killed another four youths protesting against the extrajudicial activities of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Surulere, Lagos State.
The #EndSARS protesters had on Monday morning 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.
In a bid to disperse the protesters, police officers were reported to have shot indiscriminately and four protesters were hit by the gunshots.
Although the police are yet to confirm the incident, numerous videos have emerged showing sporadic shootings resulting to a number of being dead, with the protesters scampering for safety.
Below are some of the reactions, photos and video recorded at the protest scene.
