Lauretta Onochie, Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, has slammed CNN over its investigative report on the Lekki shooting.
On Thursday, the aide stated that CNN lied to the international community, adding that Nigeria will not be intimidated.
“I’m not upset that CNN lied to the world about my nation, Nigeria. I’m upset that they think we are so stupid that we will swallow their lies. We won’t be bullied into believing a lie!”, she tweeted.
Cable News Network, an American based television channel, said despite the denial by the federal government and the Nigerian Army, its findings show that live bullets were used against peaceful End SARS protesters.
On October 20, soldiers marched to the Lekki toll plaza at about 6:45pm and opened fire.
