A lady allegedly killed by the Nigerian Army during the shooting that greeted the #ENDSARS protest at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos, said she’s still alive and hearty.
She said the rumours of her death was a purported attack by unscrupulous elements who hid under the End SARS protest to tarnish her image.
Security agents had allegedly shot at #ENDSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday, October 20, leading to yet-to-be ascertained number of casualties.
The shooting incident had also attracted national and international outcry, with the Lagos State and Federal governments being urged to unravel the identity of the shooters and who deployed them.
The alleged Lekki Tollgate death victim, Stephen Becky, spoke to our correspondent via telephone call on Tuesday while describing the news of her death as “untrue and unbelievable”.
Becky, who finished from Jireh Educational Centre in 2018, hails from Rivers State where she currently resides with her father and six other siblings.
According to her, she got the news of her death from a friend of her elder sister who screenshot it from a group and sent to her sister’s Direct Message (DM).
“Someone posted my picture that I was among the people that was shot at Lekki Tollgate. I was very sad and angry for someone to use my picture to write RIP (Rest in Peace) when I am still alive.
“Please, I want people to know that I am very much alive, the tension they are giving my parents and siblings is too much,” Becky told Vanguard Community during an exclusive interview.
