Some Nigerians have reacted to claims of a lady who said she lost her son, Anthony during the shootout at Lekki toll gate.
Though the woman’s identity is yet to be uncovered after a viral video she shared, it was however gathered that she said her son’s corpse was recovered by his friends. She further stated that she is yet to be visited by government officials
Faulting the lady’s claim, a Facebook user identified as Pretty Loveth alleged that Anthony died after he and his friends bumped into a trailer on their way home.
“He didn’t die at Lekki tollgate, him (he) and his two friends bumped into a trailer on their way home at Petrocam Filling Station, close to Lagos Business School, Ajah. RIP Tony, we all miss you brother.”

“Tony Umeh was among the three people that had an accident on their way back from the protest before the toll gate incident, so why is this London woman alleged to be his mother claiming he was killed by the military? I felt something was off about her and you guys rained insults”
