Lai Mohammed #ENDSARS Saga
CNN recently aired a detailed documentary regarding the Lekki Massacre which happened at Lekki, Lagos on October 20, but this didn’t sit right with some people. The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed reiterated the federal government’s position that the illegal shooting at protesters didn’t happen.
CNN on full war mode against Lai Mohammed and his Ogas. That press conference was so unnecessary. Not surprised though, the same old defensive and shield-the-truth-away approach. At least they can’t silence CNN nor freeze their bank accounts. — Wale Adetona (@iSlimfit) November 19, 2020
He also said that the TV channel should be sanctioned over its report of the alleged Lekki massacre because they are promoting a baseless and preconceived narrative. This, however, came with a lot of backlash from users all over social media.
