Information Minister labels CNN report on Lekki crisis as fraudulent



The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has described CNN’s report on Lekki shooting as one-dimensional and lacking in balance.

He also validated a report done by the BBC, which he claimed was based more on facts.

The Minister added that CNN should be sanctioned for misinformation and irresponsible reporting.

He referred to previous reports done by CNN which lacked balance while insisting that the military fired blank bullets into the air and not at the crowd.

The minister also said the CNN report conveniently excluded the looting, violence by citizens, burning and looting of 269 private facilities as well as vandalism of 243 govt facilities
