Reports seen online indicate several protesters shot were been treated on the roadside by fellow protesters. Cyberwarzone cannot verify the authenticity of the videos.

In another gripping image that has perhaps captured the image of these protests, one of the protesters was seen covered in blood while the flag was used to reduce the bleeding apparently from an injury.

A curfew was imposed by the Lagos State Government earlier in the day starting from 4pm but was later moved to 9pm today. However, the protesters were defiant choosing to continue the protest until their demands are met.
