”The second death claim occurred at Oke- Aiyepe which is several kilometers away from the protest ground and not on the route to the Government house. This happened at 4:35 pm, over 30 minutes after the governor was evacuated for the violence-ridden protest ground and settled in the Government House.
”None of these deaths happened at the protest ground. None of the governor’s aides fired a bullet.”
