GBAGAM: CNN Dares FG, Releases Second Report of Lekki Shootings


CNN has shunned the Federal Government by releasing the second report on Lekki shootings amid the threats of sanction.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed had last week described CNN’s report on Lekki shooting as poor journalism.

Also, the minister went ahead, saying the network deserved to be sanctioned and also followed up the threat with a letter addressed to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

However, the network on Tuesday did a second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The fresh report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig. Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that his men indeed took live ammunition to the tollgate.

The CNN report also highlights the fact that Brig. Gen Taiwo’s claim is at variance with the minister’s who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

The fresh report also shows protesters running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
