An aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, Lauretta Onochie has accused international media house, CNN of lying in its report about the Lekki tollgate incident involving #EndSARS protesters and security operatives.
She stated on Thursday that CNN by its report, wanted to bully Nigerians into accepting its report on the Lekki shooting incident.
It will be recalled that amidst the confusion which has trailed the October 20 Lekki tollgate shootings when security operatives allegedly opened fire on peaceful #EndSARS protesters in Lagos State, what actually transpired on that fateful night has so far remained shrouded in controversy.
The claim has also been rejected by Onochie who wrote on her Twitter page: “I’m not upset that CNN lied to the world about my nation, Nigeria.”
“I’m upset that they think we are so stupid that we will swallow their lies. We won’t be bullied into believing a lie!”
