JUST IN FG has threatened to sanction a foreign media outlet, CNN, over its report on the alleged shooting of End SARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki toll plaza on October 20, 2020.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who made this known at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday described the report by the foreign news medium as “irresponsible journalism”.
He described the event of October 20, 2020, as a “massacre without bodies.”
Mohammed also insisted that not a single body has been produced or a single-family has come out to claim their family member was killed at the Lekki toll gate.
The minister also alleged that CNN relied on social media video without verification to produce its report.
“This should earn CNN a serious sanction for irresponsible reporting,” he said.
