Lekki Shooting: 28 injured #EndSARS protesters taken to hospital, says Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, disclosed in a series of tweets on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, that at least 28 people were injured on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, when soldiers shot at #EndSARS protesters in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

Although the Governor was silent on the number of fatalities, he explained that the injured victims were receiving medical treatment across three hospitals in the state.

He made this disclosure shortly after he visited the victims who sustained various degrees of gunshot wounds as a result of the action of the soldiers.

According to him, 10 victims are being treated at the General Hospital, 11 at Reddington, and 4 hospitalised at Vedic medical facility.

As at the time of filing this report, the Governor confirmed that the victims sustained mild to moderate levels of injuries, but two were receiving intensive medical care.

He, however, added that 3 patients have so far been discharged from the hospital, while 25 others were on admission.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said it took him this long to react to the shooting because he was prioritising the welfare of the victims of the unfortunate incident.

The governor also gave an assurance that the state government would continue to monitor and ensure that all the injured victims were given the best care.
