Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed was called out again by CNN in their newsroom program on the morning of today November 20, over threats of sanction.
The American Newsagency which stated that it is standing by its report on the Lekki toll gate stressed that Lai Mohammed did not provide any evidence to back his allegation of them being “irresponsible” with their report which he claimed was “one-dimensional and lacking in balance.”
Recall that Mr. Mohammed who also insisted that the military only fired empty bullets on protesters at Lekki toll gate, also queried Dj Switch on who she is allegedly fronting for.
Reiterating that the Nigerian army and Lagos government refused to comment on their findings, CNN added that their report was based on testimonies from dozens of witnesses, photos geolocated by CNN which according to them painted a picture of how “members of the Nigerian army and the police shot at the crowd, killing at least one person and wounding dozens”
CNN also disclosed that they verified footage obtained from witnesses and protesters by using timestamps and data from the video files.
