Responding to the visual, 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.
She wrote; “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.
