The Federal Government of Nigeria has threatened to sanction CNN over the lekki shooting video that was uploaded by the media house.
The Minister for Information and Culture Lai Mohammed speaking on Thursday dismissed the investigation of CNN and labelled it as “fake news” and “misinformation,” while denying the use of live rounds on the EndSars protesters.
In his words:
“Like everyone else, I watched the CNN report. I must tell you that it reinforces the disinformation that is going around, and it is blatantly irresponsible and a poor piece of journalistic work by a reputable international news organization. This is very serious and CNN should be sanctioned for that.”
