“It’s the sounds of gunshots that woke me up around 8.45 this morning,” Comedian Bovi said on Twitter.
“Location- lekki. Peeped outside and saw people running frantically. I can’t even lie, I’m shook.”
At least seven people were killed according to DJ Switch, a popular disc jockey, who broadcast live from the scene on Instagram.
The shooting started hours before the 24-hour curfew announced by the Lagos State government began.
But the state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-Olu said in a statewide broadcast that there were no fatalities.
