Social Media Massacre Took Place During End SARS Protest – Nigerian Govt by valentineuwakwe(m): 6:20pm On Nov 07, 2020
The Federal Government, on Saturday, said social media massacre took place during the End SARS protest.

DAILY POST reports that this came from the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed during a meeting between a Federal Government delegation and Southeast leaders.


Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, Chief of Staff to President Buhari led the Federal Government delegation to the meeting at the Enugu Government House.

On the side of the Southeast were the governors, religious and traditional leaders, as well as youth groups.

In what seemed to be a reference to the alleged killing of End SARS protesters at the Leki Toll Gate in Lagos, Mohammed said, “the only massacre that took place during the End SARS was the social media massacre.

Fake news was used, they used social media to spread what did not happen, which led to reprisals.”

He insisted that the social media must be regulated, stressing “the Federal Government had warned about fake news as far back as 2017; we launched a national campaign against fake news because we foresaw this. Fake news kills more than any pandemic.

“There must be social media regulation. But social media regulation does not mean stifling the media, it does not mean shutting down the social media, it means responsive use of the social media. Fake news can shake the cause of the world.”


He pointed out that fake news by a national television led to attacks on several branches of Access Banks nationwide.

Also at the meeting, labour minister, Senator Chris Ngige asked for understanding of the citizens as government was being faced with severe economic challenges.

He said things became so bad that government was now borrowing to pay salaries.

More to come…

The Endsars protesters and amnesty international are still compiling the names of the 78 "Ghosts" that died in the "audio Lekki Massacre".

Families too will start declaring their loved ones missing, just give them one year. Na census dem won do...lol
The Oyigbo Massacre that occured of recent, we saw pictures and we have names but Lekki own na ghosts die.

But egbon Lai, na you and your fellow politicians teach dem youth lies and propaganda na.
Your former lying mercenaries like Omojuwa, Sowore, Debola are still the brains behind the Lekki hoax na.

We the Nigerian Youth's also demand for death by hanging to all corrupt political holders... You can't regulate social media cos you guys don't have what it takes to bring forth good governance...

You have plundered the Nation into massive Dept and poverty is greatly dealing with the large percentage... How many of you declared your assets? We can't condone your barbaric and selfish style of Leadership..

We say no to Suffering and smiling.
