Police bullets have reportedly ended the lives of two protesters on Monday during a protest in Surulere area of Lagos state.
This comes after roads in Lekki, Surulere and Allen Avenue in Lagos were shut down as protests calling for the reform of the police and the dissolution of SARS continued.
Twitter users cried out on the platform after police reportedly started shooting at peaceful protesters in Surulere.
We just lost a Nigerian to a gunshot, at the Surulere protest 💔💔💔💔
The medical team did their best to keep him alive. The young Nigerian also put up a good fight.

I had to also rush this guy to Randle Hospital
He's lucky the bullet missed his femoral artery.
