Nigerian army denies moving dead bodies from Lekki toll gate

The Nigerian Army has described reports claiming operatives had moved dead bodies from the shooting incident in Lekki toll gate as fake news. 

Sahara Reporters earlier today Friday 30th October, published an exclusive report claiming the bodies had been moved to the Infectious Disease Hospital.

The report in part read:

”At least 20 bodies of EndSARS protesters massacred at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos by operatives of the Nigerian Army on October 20, 2020, were on Friday secretly moved to the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) mortuary in Yaba. 

SaharaReporters gathered that the Lekki massacre victims were moved to the IDH mortuary after a postmortem examinations was conducted on their bodies at the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.”

Reacting via its official Twitter handle, the Nigerian Army described the report as fake.
