“Who gave the order? Who switched off the toll gate billboard lights and why was the CCTV footage doctored? We don’t need your apology, we need you all behind bars. Far away from any political office in Nigeria,” she wrote.

At least 48 protestors were shot dead, wounded with gunshot wounds, or beaten by military, according to the panel. Nine demonstrators have been confirmed deceased, with another four feared dead.

According to the commission, around 20 of the 48 victims suffered gunshot wounds, while 13 others were attacked by military personnel.
