The footage showed that the scene was calm until about 6.43 pm when people could be seen running towards the Tollgate from the Oriental Hotel end.

Two minutes later, at 6.45 pm, military trucks with flashing headlights arrived the scene. There were no fewer than seven of them.

At 6.53 pm, about 10 minutes after the arrival of the military vehicles, the Tollgate went into a blackout.

Two minutes later, at 6.55 pm, one of the military vehicles drove through the Tollgate to the other end where the crowd of protesters was gathered.

The Managing Director of LCC, Abayomi Omomuwa, had submitted the video footage on Tuesday, November 3 but the panel started viewing it November 6.

About four hours of the video which started at about 11:35 am to about 5 pm was played with a pause in between during break time.

Recall that the Federal Government on Thursday, 19 November, denied that anyone was killed at the Tollgate and slammed a foreign media outlet, CNN for a report claiming otherwise.
