Following the killings at Lekki tollgate a viral video of a woman who is yet to be identified had claimed that his son Anthony Umeh was a victim of the shootings, adding that it was his friend who helped recover his corpse.
Reacting to the video, some social media users faulted her claims.
A Facebook user, Pretty Loveth alleged that Anthony died after he and his friends bumped into a trailer on their way home.
“He didn’t die at Lekki tollgate, him (he) and his two friends bumped into a trailer on their way home at Petrocam Filling Station, close to Lagos Business School, Ajah. RIP Tony, we all miss you brother.”
A Twitter user Ijaw Philosopher reacted with a Photo of Tony and a Woman alleged to be his “real mother“
“Tony Umeh was among the 3 people that had an accident on their way back from the protest before the toll gate incident , so why is this London woman alleged to be his mother claiming he was killed by the military?
“I felt something was off about her and you guys rained insults” he tweeted.
The Lagos state police command has also stated that they are not aware of the death of Anthony Umeh.
