After the arrival of the military vehicles, the tollgate went into a blackout.

The October 20 incident has generated controversy in Nigeria and across the world with many claiming the soldiers fired live bullets directly at the harmless protesters.

However, the Nigerian Army has continued to deny that its troops opened fire on the group of young men and women campaigning against police brutality in the country.
