The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has insisted that there were no mass killings of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate contrary to the general belief.
He stated this at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday.
According to the Minister, those who alleged massacre at the toll gate only succeeded in misleading the world.
Lai Mohammed 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 tollgate.
He asked anyone who has contrary proofs to make them available to the panel investigating the matter.
Lai 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.
