A week after the shooting of peaceful demonstrators in Lagos, Nigeria’s army has admitted its soldiers were deployed to restore order, but denied they opened fire on the gathered crowd protesting against police brutality. Al Jazeera reports that the army had previously maintained that its troops were not at the site, but late on Tuesday a military spokesman admitted that soldiers were sent to enforce a curfew but denied that the troops shot at the protesters. The military’s statement came shortly before Amnesty International’s Wednesday publication of an investigation that said it had tracked army vehicles from their Lagos barracks to Lekki Toll Gate using photographs and verified videos of the soldiers’ movements that had been posted on social media.
