I still have bullets in my body – Lekki Shooting survivor narrates ordeal

A survivor of the Lekki Toll gate shooting, Meshack Esanibi, has said he still has bullets in his left leg as doctors are still battling to have them removed.

Esanibi was rushed to the General Hospital, Odan, Lagos Island, after he was allegedly shot by soldiers drafted to disperse the #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday, October 20, leading to yet-to-be ascertained number of casualties.

Two weeks after, Esanibi said he had been able to establish contact with a relative after his story was published.

“Since I was admitted after the Lekki toll gate shooting incident, the bullet has not been removed. It is still in my leg.

“I don’t even know whether the bullet was the cause of the intense pain I am feeling. But I was told by a doctor that I will soon be taken into the theatre again.

“Even the result of the X-ray done on my leg was not given to me. But I observe that the doctors have it on their phone from where they assess it from time to time,” he said.

Esanibi said he had not started using his leg but said his gunshot wounds are being attended to regularly.
