One person was feared dead when the ongoing protest against police brutality, extortion and extra-judicial killings turned violent in the Surulere area of Lagos State on Monday.
It was gathered that two protesters were hit by bullets after police officers shot indiscriminately to disperse the protesters. One of those hit by the gunshot has been reported dead.
Efforts by the medical team at the scene of the protest to resuscitate him proved abortive as he died at the scene.
Another protester was shot in the leg and quickly rushed to the hospital.
Although the police are yet to confirm the incident, numerous videos have emerged showing sporadic shootings with the protesters scampering for safety.
The protesters have earlier blocked the entrances of the Murtala Muhammed Airport and National Stadium Surulere in a bid to express their grievances against police brutality.
They also blocked the Murtala Muhammed Access Plaza displaying placards with various inscriptions, thereby causing obstruction of movement and delayed vehicles from accessing the airport.
