The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has reacted to the Lagos state #EndSARS panel report submitted to the state governor last Monday, Nov 18.
According to Mohammed, the report doesn’t prove that there was a massacre at Lekki tollgate because it was riddled with discrepancies.
The minister stated this while addressing a press conference in Abuja today, November 23. He added that the report can not relied upon and nothing can change his mind that a massacre happened at Lekki Toll Gate.
“Without mincing words, never in the history of any judicial panel in Nigeria has a report been so riddled with discrepancies and conclusions that are not backed up [with facts.
It was a phantom massacre. The report in circulation cannot be relied upon. The leakage of an unsigned report to the public is not enough.
There is absolutely nothing in the report, circulating, to change our mind that there was a massacre at the Lekki tollgate.”
