In October 2020, young Nigerians demonstrated across major cities in a historic protest against decades of police brutality. The exceptionally organized march went on peacefully for days until the Nigerian military forcefully dispersed marchers who were keeping vigil at the Lekki Toll Plaza on October 20.

The various authorities who were believed to be involved in the “lekki massacre” denied the event didn’t happen and it appears the local media doesn’t exist.

CNN took it on itself to investigate what happened on the night and released its investigation on November 8, and the investigation uncovered evidence that Nigerian security forces opened fire on unarmed protesters.
