Contrary to viral media report that Nigerian actress Eniola Badmus is one of the seven people who have been shot dead at Lekki Toll Gate during the ongoing EndSars protest, the actress has surfaced to debunk the report.
Nigerians have been demonstrating nationwide every day for nearly two weeks against a police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), that rights groups had for years accused of extortion, harassment, torture, intimidation, and murders.
However, things got out of control when soldiers opened fire on demonstrators on Tuesday which allegedly included the actress. However, Eniola took to social media to deny the report saying;
Against all speculations about me being shot or dead at the unspeakable incident that happened at the toll gate few hours ago, I would like to inform you guys that I Eniola Badmus is hale and hearty. Infact, I couldn’t make it there today to lend my voice on the #endsars movement.
But in truth, I am broken and scattered to see what my country has become. We are tired and it’s becoming one time too many, how is it wrong to demand for our right/ expectations and be killed at it. How?
We wont forget this day – 20.10.2020 in a long time.
May the souls of the fallen heros Rest In Peace!
