CNN Defies FG, Releases Another video Report on Lekki Tollgate Killings

Despite threats from the Federal Government to sanction Cable Network News (CNN) for their involvement in the Lekki Tollgate investigation, the television network has gone ahead to release a second report on the incident.

Brigadier General Taiwo confirmed that there were live rounds at the scene.

Lai Mohammed who is Nigeria’s Minister for Information and Culture had stated last week that CNN’s actions warrant sanctions.

But CNN would not be deterred, as they released another footage of soldiers firing live bullets at unarmed protesters.

Lai Mohammed has on behalf of the Federal Government threatened CNN with Sanctions.

The latest footage shows protesters scrambling for their lives as the shootings began on that night, 20th October, 2020.

Sudanese CNN reporter, Nima Elbagir, covers the investigations.

The footage also states how the versions of the stories put forward by Lai Mohammed and Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo are at variance.
