Commander of the 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Brigadier Ahmed Taiwo, made this known on Saturday when he appeared before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up in the state to investigate cases of police brutality.

He also insisted that the military only fired into the air and not directly at the #EndSARS protesters.

While explaining that the blank bullets cannot cause any damage to the flesh, Brigadier Taiwo said if real bullets were indeed used, one bullet had the potency to kill three persons at one shot.
