Days after the judicial panel submitted the names of the victims of the Lekki toll gate protest to the Lagos state government, the Minister of information, Lai Mohammed, says the federal government is yet to believe the report.
It can be recollected that the Cable News Network (CNN) has been following the #Endsars case from day one and the media organization took to its platform to broadcast the live update about the report submitted to the Lagos state government.
According to the minister, he claimed that CNN and other media houses were in a rush to celebrate the #Endsars panel report which he claimed the Buhari-led Federal Government is yet to accept as a valid one.
In his words, he said;
“By that action, CNN has celebrated prematurely and has now committed a double faux pas: First, by relying on unverified social media stories and videos to carry out an investigation of the Oct. 20th, 2020 incident at Lekki, where it did not have a correspondent on ground, CNN goofed.
“In its report on the findings of the panel, which fell below the main standards of journalism. Secondly, CNN rushed to the air to celebrate an unsigned and unverified report that is riddled with inconsistencies, errors, discrepancies, innuendoes,”
