The Minister of Information and Culture, LAI MOHAMMED, has accused CNN of desperation over its second report on the Lekki toll plaza shootings that happened on October 20.
CNN had on Tuesday released a second ‘investigative report’ on the shootings at Lekki toll plaza during the #EndSARS protests amid threats of sanction from the Federal Government.
But the minister faulted CNN’s reports, saying it lacked credible sources accusing them of basing their stories on videos sourced on social media.
CNN, in its second report titled, ‘Analysis of CCTV footage from Lekki toll gate raises new questions about shooting’, stated that it had obtained the video and subsequently analyzed its content.
