Nigeria's Minister Of Information Lai Mohammed Says CNN Is Desperate After 2nd Report On Lekki Shootings

 The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has accused CNN of desperation over its second report on the Lekki toll plaza shootings that happened on October 20,2020.

The Minister said this on NTA on Wednesday after CNN released a second ‘investigative report’ on Tuesday on the shootings that occurred at Lekki toll plaza during the #EndSARS protests amid threats of sanction from the Federal Government.

He faulted CNN’s reports, saying it lacked credible sources.
When asked about the second CNN’s report, Mohammed said, “It shows that they (CNN) are desperate. The so-called recent development has been seen before. There is nothing new. If there is anything new, it is a contradiction of CNN’s position.
What we are asking CNN is that where is your evidence? The military has been consistent. CNN contravenes the basic principles of journalism – fairness, and balance.They did the story without contacting the Federal Government for its own side. They relied on second and third parties narratives.
“They (CNN) were caught spreading fake news and they are trying to escape.
.We are accusing them (CNN) of basing their stories on videos sourced on social media. CNN has been inconsistent. It also doctored the video it got.
.We are confident in our position.”

  1. They will soon embarrass you again. You no go close your mouth. No matter how much you try to deny, the truth will stick.

  2. Until CNN tell us how Nima Elbagir and Stephanie Busari deployed journalistic magic to turn 38 dead at the Lekki toll gate in their original report to only one, an admission of wrongdoing, everything CNN writes on the Lekki Toll Gate shooting is balderdash

    Until CNN can provide just one person who died at Lekki Toll Gate or family member of one of the deceased, anything they say is cow dung to patriotic Nigerians like us


    1. Eesah I know people like you that get paid monthly to support the govt. CNN produced witnesses, abi you watched from back of your TV ni.

    2. Arranged witnesses. Shady witnesses. Witnesses like you who didn't lose anyone there or know anyone who died there but claim 78 people were massacred there

  3. Na cap be there identity

  4. Parrots end up indicting themselves.

    He who the gods want to kill, they first run mad. In his own case, he'll keep talking (confessing) before his end.

  5. Mtchweee 😎 😎 😎 😎 . Old fool , keep deceiving yourself.

  6. You are better off keeping quiet minister of misinformation, Chief Lie Lie!

  7. Shush jor... 🀫🀫🀫🀫

  8. Is that the best defense he can come up with?

    Best he kept quiet than this embarrassing speech
    Saying nothing at all

    Like I saw on twitter
    Instead of crying at the feet of CNN, why don’t you have your own NTA carry out his journalistic investigation with all available data and tell it’s own side of the story

  9. This man sef!
