Vanguard reports that the company’s representative, Joseph Kayode Funsho, while testifying before the panel said the live ammunition (bullets) were discovered to have been registered to the Nigerian Army. He, however, said the blanks didn’t match the records from the Nigerian Army’s inventory.

The company’s findings, however, seem to contradict the claims of the Nigerian Army.

In November 2020, Commander of the 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Brigadier Ahmed Taiwo, while testifying before the panel insisted that only blank bullets containing gunpowder were fired at the Lekki Tollgate on October 20.
