#EndSARS: FG condemns CNN’s investigative report on Lekki shooting incident, calls for sanction

Published

on

The Federal Government has said that international media house, CNN, should be sanctioned over its investigative report on the October 20 shooting that took place at the Lekki tollgate where #EndSARS protesters had gathered to demand an end to police brutality.

On Wednesday, November 18, the international media house shared an in-depth report of its investigation on the incident. The report showed videos of what appears to be soldiers shooting directly at the protesters. CNN in its report said investigations showed that live ammunition was fired at the protesters. The media house also spoke with one Elisha Sunday who claimed his brother was killed in the incident.

Reacting to the report at a press conference on Thursday November19, Lai Mohammed who spoke on behalf of the Federal government, said the report was one-dimensional and lacked balance.

Describing the report as “irresponsible journalism”, he alleged that CNN relied on social media videos without verification to produce its report.

“This should earn CNN a serious sanction for irresponsible reporting,” Mohammed said.

The Minister added that the Federal government was standing by testimony given by the Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, who told the Judicial Panel of Inquiry instituted by the Lagos State Government last Saturday, November 14, that the military officers who were at the tollgate on that day, fired blank bullets.

Ghana Election 2020: Award winning Investigative Crusader Journalist and Anti-Corruption Manasseh Azuri Awuni is saying, Ghanaians will return to the street to hustle after enjoying Free SHS.

According to Manasseh, Ghanaians has helped the government to cover corruption issues with Free SHS, praising the government whiles they know they are corrupting the system in the worst possibly ever.


He is of the convictin that, corruption will definately affect anybody, whether rich or poor.

“Whether we talk about it or not, corruption has consequences for everyone of us, including those who have insured their future generations against poverty by stealing and hoarding what belongs to all of us.”

Taking to Facebook, Manasseh wrote a statement which reads;

Free SHS and Corruption

Free SHS was not what brought Akufo-Addo to power. He promised Free SHS in 2008 and lost. He promised Free SHS in 2012 and lost.

In 2016, he won mainly because Ghanaians were outraged about corruption. And what has he done about the fight against corruption which he promised? Not only has he taken corruption to an absurd level, but he has undermined anti-corruption agencies like the Auditor-General.

But some people say he has brought about free SHS so we should not talk about corruption. Why not? The unbridled corruption of years of yore is what has impoverished so many people that they cannot afford decent livelihoods and pay the fees of their wards.

The interests and repayments of the misapplied and stolen billions we are borrowed are choking us. And people will attend the schools for free and go back to their parents’ single rooms to hustle for obvious reasons.

Whether we talk about it or not, corruption has consequences for everyone of us, including those who have insured their future generations against poverty by stealing and hoarding what belongs to all of us.

It is possible to have implemented free SHS without corruption.

Or?
