Amid threats of sanction from the Federal Government of Nigeria over its investigative report on the Lekki toll shooting of Tuesday, October 20, Cable News Network, CNN has released a second report on the incident.
Recall that Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, had last week described CNN’s report on the Lekki shootings as poor journalism, and said that the network needs to be sanctioned.
He followed up the threat with a petition addressed to the management of CNN in Atlanta.
However, the US-headquartered news station on Tuesday released a second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.
The fresh report also shows Brig. Gen Ahmed Taiwo, the Commander, 81 Division of the Nigerian Army admitting before the Lagos judicial panel that soldiers took live and blank bullets to the toll gate.
