There was a fire outbreak on the bridge which connects Lekki to the Ikoyi axis of Lagos.
The bridge has been the alternative route for residents since #EndSARS protesters blocked the Lekki toll gates 13 days ago.
The protesters, who have been demanding an overhaul of the police, have refused to leave the streets despite pleas from government and other stakeholders.
The fire outbreak was recorded after soldiers opened fire at the Lekki toll gate.
There are reports that lives were lost in the incident but the report cannot independently verify this.
