It was also gathered that efforts by the security personnel manning the edifice for their retreat fell on deaf ears, which led to reinforcement of the security personnel.

Meanwhile, sporadic shooting is going on across the length and breadth of Lokoja, as school children, Journalists scamper to safety.

One Emmanuel Adeyemi, a Kogi state Correspondent of The Sun Newspaper, was this morning, Monday, October 26, 2020, shot by security operatives while monitoring the ongoing #endsars protest across Lokoja, the state Capital.

In a reaction, the force PRO, DSP William Aya, said those who shot the Journalist could be the looters who needed free space to perpetuate their nefarious acts.

Emmanuel, who lives at first Baptist church Street, was shot by the passing security personnel who were in a white Hilux, few metres away from his house, while on his way to the NUJ Secretariat where his other colleagues were being held hostage by the gun shots.
