Ex-Director Public Relations of the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Sani Usman (rtd), has said that blank ammunition was used during the shooting of protesters at the Lekki tollgate on Tuesday, October 20.

Usman said this during a session of ARISE News where he appeared as a guest on Wenesday October 29.

According to him, the blank ammo has little or no effect on its target.

“If you look at the canisters, they were blank ammo and blank ammo don’t even kill. At a close range, l – maybe 100-metres – maybe it will have some pigmentation on your skin.

“Remember the military are armed and by the nature of their training, they are trained to kill and I think the military in its wisdom instead of using live ammunition decided to use blank armour which is meant for training.

“I think they should be commended for that otherwise there would have been serious collateral damage, but they were professional enough to have done that.”Usman said

First, Army was not there.
Then, Army was invited by State governor.
Now, Army was there but fired rubber bullets.
Next, Army was there, fired the gun, but shoot blank.
It's coming up. Final truth is when, victim families will cry out! Useless people. You cannot even own up to what you did.
