#EndSARS: Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge tollgate on fire (VIDEO)

The toll gate at the Lekk-Ikoyi link bridge has been set on fire.

The bridge connects Lekki to the Ikoyi axis of Lagos.

The bridge has been the alternative route for residents since #EndSARS protesters blocked the Lekki toll gates 13 days ago.
The protesters, who have been demanding an overhaul of the police, have refused to leave the streets despite pleas from government and other stakeholders.

The fire outbreak was recorded after security operatives opened fire at protesters a Lekki toll gate.

There are reports that lives were lost in the incident but TMZNaija cannot independently verify this.

Hours before the shooting started, the security cameras at the Lekki tollgate protest ground were removed and the street lights turned off, allegedly ordered by the state government.

Videos posted online showed some wounded protesters being helped by their colleagues. 

Others were seen administering CPR to some injured persons, to resuscitate them.
