#EndSars: CNN releases second report on Lekki shootings (Video)

second report on Lekki shootings
CNN keeps showing how ready it remains to kick against injustice in Nigeria

Cable News Network (CNN) has released a second report on Lekki shootings in a dare of the officials of the Nigerian Government.

The new video is the second time the TV platform will offer a report on the Lekki Toll Gate shooting.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had last week described CNN’s first report on the Lekki shootings as poor journalism, adding that the network needs to be sanctioned.

Mohammed also backed up the threat with a letter sent to the management of CNN in Atlanta.


However, the network on Tuesday gave another report with more clear 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 shot at protesters with live ammunition at 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.
