I Still Have Bullets In My Body — Lekki Shooting Survivor

A survivor of the Lekki Toll gate shooting identified as 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 on the left leg by soldiers drafted to disperse the #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, the Punch reports.

Security agents had shot at the protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday, October 20, leading to yet-to-be ascertained number of casualties.

The shooting incident had also attracted national and international outcry, with the Lagos State and Federal governments being urged to unravel the identity of the shooters and who deployed them.

Looking better than he was two weeks ago, Esanibi said he had been able to establish contact with a relative after his story was published.

The Delta State indigene, however revealed that he had been experiencing excruciating pain all over his body, especially on the affected limb, noting that the discomfort he felt might be because the bullet had not been extracted from his leg.

“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.

Continuing, Esanibi said he had not started using his leg. He, however, said that his gunshot wounds are being attended to regularly.
