Lekki Shooting: We Won’t Allow CNN Spread Fake News, Set Nigeria On Fire – Lai Moh’d

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has said the Cable News Network (CNN) is grasping at straws in desperation, to justify its inaccurate and unbalanced investigation into the shooting of EndSARS protesters in Lekki

Speaking on Friday at a stakeholder’ meeting with the Broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria (BON) held in Abuja, Lai Mohammed vowed not to spare CNN or any other media organization for carrying out unverified information from the controversial Lekki Toll Gate incident.

He said the US-based media outfit was spreading fake news about the Lekki shooting to set Nigeria on fire.

The Minister pointed out that the use of unverified videos, and the non-adherence to the basic tenets of journalism have combined to land the international broadcaster, CNN, in trouble”.
