#LekkiMassacre: I didn’t see any dead bodies — Filmmaker Onesoul

Nollywood filmmaker, Ideh Chukwuma AKA One soul has shared his experience at the Lekki Toll gate Massacre.

He told Premium times how he didn’t care about the risk and went to rescue injured protesters on Tuesday evening when the shootings occurred.

He was asked to describe what he saw on Tuesday night, Onesoul said:

“What I will say is, I have been hearing people say “Lekki massacre, Lekki massacre.”

I have to be honest with you if you Google the term “massacre,” massacre is a situation where a group of people were being killed by rebels or the military and going by that particular point, I would have been able to tell you that I saw a lot of dead bodies, this is how they killed them, there were a lot of dead bodies and so it was a massacre.

But from the time I came, I didn’t see any dead bodies but I can certainly tell you that there was a shooting, an unauthorised shooting. I will call it a raid, I will call it assault. I am going to term it assault and raid.

That is what I would use. It was an assault and I may be wrong but because I didn’t see those bodies, and I have not seen a family member that has come to cry and say one two or three persons have died.

If DJ Switch had seen that, she’s in the best position to say that because she was there. I cannot say she’s wrong, I was out of that circle and a few meters away. They were at the toll gate and I was a few meters away from them. I wasn’t.
