OGUN, Nigeria – A video of some operatives of the Nigeria Police Force firing live bullets to disperse protesters in Sagamu Ogun State is presently making the round on social media.
WuzupNigeria reported earlier that some residents of Sagamu took to the street early on Monday morning to protest against the killing of Kazeem Tiyamiyu, the assistant captain of Remo Stars Football Club.
The protest, however, turned bloody as about five people have been confirmed dead.
In the footage shared by The Nation, police officers were filmed on a street shooting to disperse the protesters.
According to The Nation, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police denied that his men fired gunshots at the protesters.
He claimed miscreants tried to hijack the protest and might have been the ones who fired shots.
