The Nigerian Army has responded to claims that soldiers were deployed to the Lekki toll gate, Lagos.

It stated briefly that "No soldiers were at the scene"; this is despite video evidence contrary to the claim.

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had, on Tuesday, declared a 24-hour state of emergency in response to the ongoing protest that has led to the razing of three police stations.

Management of the Lekki toll gate had shut off all lights, plunging the area into total darkness.

CCTV cameras have been unmounted by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) at the toll gate.
