A woman who identified herself as the mother of Mmazuo Anthony Okechukwu who was killed at the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre has spoken out concerning the death of her son.
The mother who is based abroad narrated that she found out about her son’s death online when she saw his photo being circulated on social media despite claims made by the Nigerian government of no fatality.
She further explained that her 23-year-old son, Anthony died from gunshot wounds sustained at the protest in Lekki Toll Gate as confirmed by his brother who stays in Russia.
In a video posted online, she said;
First of all, I want to thank his friends who picked him up from when he was shot.
If it wasn’t for his friends, maybe the soldiers who picked up other corpses would have picked him up and say nobody died.
Those children saw when Anthony was running with gunshot wounds, they stayed with him.
I cannot fathom what happened. A lot of our children, a lot of our youths, killed. And you lot have the effrontery to come out and look everybody, the whole world, to say nobody died.
May death befall all of you.
