The United Kingdom has called for the probe of the shooting at Lekki Toll Gate area of Lagos and other related incidents that occurred during the #EndsARS protests.

Security forces had opened fire at peaceful demonstrators at the Lekki toll gate areas after protesters had camped there for weeks demanding for an end to police brutality and a reform of the force.

The United Kingdom High Commission in Nigeria disclosed in a tweet on its verified Twitter handle on Monday that perpetrators of crimes must be brought to book.

The Commission urged security agencies to apply restraint in its bid to restore law and order in the country.

The tweet read, “We remain concerned by acts of looting & violence in Flag of Nigeria & urge security services use restraint as order is restored,” the High Commission added.

“Working with all stakeholders, judicial panels of inquiry must investigate all incidents, including #Lekki, & ensure accountability for crimes.”

The Lekki toll gate shooting came after weeks of peaceful demonstrations by youths across the federation for a better Nigeria.
