A Lekki resident told TheCable that she started hearing gunshots around 7pm.

The protesters have refused to leave the toll gate despite the 24-hour curfew imposed by the state government.

There are reports that some of the protesters have been shot dead but TheCable cannot independently verify the claim.

One Wale Adetona, a Twitter user, said at least three protesters have been killed at the scene.

“From the videos I’ve seen which I can’t share on my page, they’ve killed at least 3 protesters at the Lekki Toll gate right now. This is not right! This is not right!!!! This is sad!!!” he wrote.

Earlier in the day, some Twitter users raised the alarm that closed circuit television (CCTV) at the toll gate had been disconnected.
