#EndSARS: FG, NBC Trolled As CNN Reveals Investigation Of Lekki Shootings by Islie: 8:36pm On Nov 18
Nigerians on social media on Wednesday dragged the Federal government and Nigeria Broadcasting Commission after CNN released its findings from an independent investigation carried out on the October 20 shooting incident at the Lekki tollgate.

Footage released by CNN showed that soldiers shot at the End SARS protesters who had gathered at the tollgate to press home their demands to end SARS as well as police brutality.

CNN also tracked the bullets shells seen at the scene of the massacre which showed that they were purchased by the Federal government from Serbia in 2005.


The global cable network in its investigation spoke with a man, Elisha Sunday, whose brother, Victor, was killed during the October 20th shooting incident amid Federal Government’s claims of ”No casualties.”

Following the development, Nigerians took to social media to drag the Buhari led government over their inability to fully sanction the culprits behind the massacre.

While some applauded the international media house for carrying out a detailed investigation of the incident and making revelations, others mocked the Federal Government and the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission saying they have no powers to sanction CNN over its detailed investigation.

The reactions gathered by DAILY POST from socail media were mostly against the Nigerian government.

@Neferitti,” NBC slammed N3m on ARISE TV, for showing that same #LekkiMassaccre video, CNN has now analyzed. CNN confirmed the live rounds fired at peaceful protesters at End SARS Lekki Tollgate, were purchased from Serbia. Remember the Army claimed they only fired blank bullets in the air.”

@Ayothefirst,” The CNN documentary of the #LekkiMassaccre will make you angry at the government and Nigerian Army all over again.We expect them to dispute this and label it fake news as usual. Don’t forget anything the government labels “fake news” is the undiluted truth.”

@WaleAdetona,” If you watch that CNN video, you’ll be amazed at how they were able to track the bullets to the Nigerian Army firearms purchase from Serbia.”

@DocOlufimayo,”Lekki massacre was 20/10/2020. The CNN investigation came out to the public 18/11/2020. They contacted the Nigerian Army and Lagos Govt to give it to them- they were turned down. In <4weeks, foreign media gave us the truth with evidence- ahead of the govt. What a disgrace.”

NEWS: End SARS: CNN staff must be sanctioned for investigation on Lekki shooting - Activist
@Ayemojubar,” Lt. Gen. Taiwo lied confidently under OATH! I’ll say it again, these people have no soul.“

@TopeAkinyode,” The Nigerian government opened live ammunition on harmless citizens who held the flag & sang the national anthem. Victims were denied medical attention & some gave up the ghost. The is the truth. The CNN report & social media rescued us from Lai Mohammed.“

@Pastorola,” CNN investigation hella accurate they even traced the bullets found to the Serbia where Nigeria bought it from. Nigeria is so deep-rooted in mediocrity and inaptness that one army spokesman said “IG live was photoshopped.I love how CNN exposed them with proof.”

@Africanactioncongress,” With this revelation thorough investigation by the CNN on the LekkiMassaccre of #EndSARS protesters on 20:10:20 , the best thing @MBuhari would have done is to resign immediately but @OfficialAPCNg is a shameless party filled with people without conscience. Justice must prevail!”

@onlykwaffy,” The CNN investigation have laid to rest every contentious issue about the #LekkiMassaccre of END SARS protesters. Anybody who tries to drive a narrative that our heroes weren’t shot dead by the leprous government should be stoned to death.”
@Adetola,” Forensic evidence of bullet casings used by Nigerian army indicate they used live rounds. After the army withdrew, a second round of shooting by Police happened later in the evening. CNN investigation on #LekkiMassaccre with evidence, bodies & witnesses.”

angry angry angry We all know that CNN is a left wing American propaganda machine.


So it's no longer lekki massacre, it's now lekki shootings cheesy,
tolakush92:
CNN don't destabilize our country

What we should focus on is to look for the family of the massacred people... If truly it was a massacre.. They should not show us old videos.. Let them uncover the families of the over 79 people that was massacred

I didn't see any tangible eveidence here

Even the killings of IMN members we saw enough dead bodies.. But let CNN show us the dead bodies of people that died in lekki and show us their families...

Don't just show us one person
Show us all the people that died then we will belive it was indeed a massacre

This government allows cry foul and witch hunting... APC came with disguise and promise what a father will promise a child and when he grow he will reject his father for life cos of fake promises. And when power lands in their hands, no single money in Nigeria account and they said PDP has loot everything dry and 4years later the said 16years of PDP killed Nigeria(like Nigeria start in 1999)and rig themselves into power. If you say something not same with theirs you the enemy of the state.... What hate fake news is bigger than saying subsidy removal s a scam
Pump price #65
I will cut cost of governance
No medical level abroad any government official
Light will be steady
I will jail all that have brought our dead country to her kneels
Job creation for over 15m people.
This government is the nightmare we wake up to meet with their crazy debt

APC supporters said it's fake news.

There were no killings,
No live bullets,
No military personnel,
No protesters,
No massacre.

Our govt is doing well.

But one thing I know is that the truth will prevail

Zombies are still looking for dead bodies that their dead vulture grilling counterpart will grill for them.

What goes around comes around.

If people died at Lekki and those urchins are denying it, when they die, may they see no one to cry for them.

Fools!

There may be no new evidences, but this time around it came with forensic analysis and geolocation.

Prior to now, a lot of people never knew that Nigeria has been buying bullets from Serbia since 1995, but CNN provided evidence the bullets were from see his and also provided some purchase documents.

Those videos and pictures flying around have now been confirmed to be authentic and not fake like what some SLAVES are saying

In the CNN video it showed it was truly Nigeria army not hoodlums that malami is spewing
The video confirmed that soldiers truly shot directly into protesters
It confirmed that Nigeria army used live bullets
It confirmed that people die and people were injured
There's also an interview with a family member of one of the deceased from lekki toll gate massacre


But as a zombie, you won't see all This

Why did the Nigeria army give live bullets to trainee officers and why did the Nigeria army kill the men that commited the MASSACRE?

It is just creepy to imagine a group of peaceful protesters singing the national anthem and waving the Nigerian flag still nigerian soldiers opened fire on them.

Tinubu and Sanwo Olu has brought everlasting shame on themselves.

I don't even care about the Sudanese that gave the order cause bitterness runs deep in him.
