The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has demanded justice for the young #EndSARS protesters shot on Tuesday night by soldiers at the Lekki Tollgate in Lagos.

CAN president, Rev. Samson Ayo Ayokunle, who addressed a press conference on Thursday said the action of soldiers was totally reprehensible.

He said that though the military had denied responsibility for the shooting, their presence at the scene of the dastardly incident did not help matter.

“The federal government should bring the trigger happy security men to book to serve as justice for the bereaved. Also they must ensure that the families of the victims are consoled and compensated,” he said.
