The teenage boy with a gaping chest wound injured at the Lekki toll?


A linked-in user identified as Chidi Uzoshi shared a gory post of a young man with a gaping chest wound. The post was tagged ‘n abominable act of the Nigerian security forces “end sars end bad governance”!!!!


The earliest we can track the video in question being circulated via social media was in 2018. It was first posted online that year by a medical focused Twitter account. The subject in the photo was simply identified as a 16-year-old boy who arrived in stable condition to an emergency department (presumably in the United States) with a gunshot wound to the thorax.
