Lekki Shooting: Lady cries out after seeing her alleged ‘RIP picture‘ on social media

A lady allegedly killed by the Nigerian Army in the # ENDSARS protest shooting at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos, said she was still alive and heartfelt.

She said that the rumors of her death were an alleged attack by unscrupulous individuals hidden under the protest of End SARS to tarnish her reputation.

Security agents allegedly fired shots at # ENDSARS demonstrators at Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday, October 20, resulting in a number of casualties yet to be determined.

The shooting incident also attracted national and international outrage, prompting the Lagos State and Federal governments to unravel the shooters’ identities and who deployed them.

“On Tuesday, Stephen Becky, the suspected Lekki Tollgate death survivor, spoke to our correspondent via telephone call while describing the news of her death as” untrue and unbelievable.

Becky, who graduated in 2018 from the Jireh Education Centre, is from Rivers State, where she currently lives with her dad and six other siblings.

According to her, she got the news of her death from a friend of her elder sister who screenshot it from a group and sent to her sister’s Direct Message (DM).

“Someone posted my picture that I was among the people that was shot at Lekki Tollgate. I was very sad and angry for someone to use my picture to write RIP (Rest in Peace) when I am still alive.

“Please, I want people to know that I am very much alive, the tension they are giving my parents and siblings is too much,” Becky told Vanguard Community during an exclusive interview.

“I chatted the lady that posted the news to discard the rumours of Becky’s death but to my amazement, she (the poster) replied: ‘Ok she survive’. I scolded her but she never replied after then,”

On her relationship with the alleged victim, Favour said; “Becky Stephen is my friend’s junior sister and also my junior in school back then. She’s someone I know so well, she doesn’t have problem and respect people.”

She however, cautioned those spreading rumours of Becky’s death to desist from such act.

“So I see no reason why someone would post such thing about her. They should please stop posting news of her death,” she concluded.
