#EndSARS: Lekki Incident Is A Phantom Massacre, Handiwork Of Mischievous Elements -Lai Mohammed


By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed on Thursday described the incident at Lekki Tollgate on October 20, 2020, as a phantom massacre that never happened.

Mohammed made this claim during a press briefing in Abuja, where he described the incident as a “massacre without bodies”, maintaining the federal government’s stance that soldiers did not fire live rounds at unarmed protesters

The minister’s claim seemed to be a confutation of the findings of a CNN investigation into the incident which studied video evidence of Nigerian soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll-gate, which Mr. Mohammed labeled as an attempt by the news network to promote a groundless and concocted story

Mohammed added that the government was working out measures to curtail the spread of fake news on social media platforms.
