#EndSARS: Lekki incident, a massacre without bodies — FG reacts to CNN report






The Federal Government on Thursday insisted that there were no mass killings at the Lekki toll gate in the wake of the #EndSARS protests contrary to the general belief.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this at a press conference in Abuja.

Mohammed said those who alleged massacre at the toll gate only succeeded in misleading the world.

He said while government awaits the outcome of the panel investigating the matter, “we can say that the world has just witnessed a massacre without bodies” in Lekki.

The minister insisted that the military did not shoot at protesters at the toll gate.

He asked anyone who has contrary proofs to make them available to the panel investigating the matter.

Mohammed said the government was satisfied with the way security agencies handled the protests.

The minister took a swipe at CNN for its piece on the Lekki incident, describing it as “blatantly irresponsible.”

He called for a sanction for the foreign media organisation but did not disclose where the sanction should come from.
