Fire has gutted the Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge toll plaza.

The fire affected the cubicles of the toll gate on Tuesday night.

The toll plaza was gutted by fire a few hours after soldiers allegedly killed protesters at the Lekki toll gate.

The fire also affected Oriental Hotel, GTB, Polaris, Zenith Banks all on Admiralty Way, Ikoyi.

Several eyewitnesses confirmed that soldiers of the Nigerian army opened fire on #EndSARS demonstrators who refused to leave the Lekki gates on Tuesday night.

So far, 9 persons have been confirmed dead while more than 30 others were hit by bullets, and are currently in hospitals receiving treatment.

There have been earlier reports of soldiers carting away the bodies of those who were shot, in an apparent move to hide evidence of the massacre.

Other reports say that the soldiers also prevented ambulances from accessing the scene of the shooting to assist the injured. They were also said to have visited some hospitals that night in order to fish out the dead and injured.
