Local media reported that there have been deaths and several protesters sustaining injuries during the shootout.

The state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had declared a 24-hour curfew following alleged violence that greeted the #EndSARS protest in the state.

Some of the protesters however claimed that the timing was short and refused to vacate the protest ground.

Some protesters told journalists that they were sitting on the floor when soldiers began to shoot.
