Lekki Shootings: CNN Vs BBC Video Report. Who Do You Think Gave A True View? by peacekante: 11:23am On Nov 19
These are the video report of both reputable international TV stations on the lekki shooting incident. The incident has generated quite a lot of controversies around the world. While the Nigerian Government has vehemently denied shooting at the lekki protesters. The Army on the other hand earlier denied going to lekki to shoot, but later admitted that it was at the lekki tool gate but didn't shoot live bullet. They also claimed they shot at the air not at protesters.
But the protesters are insisting that they were shot at and many were killed. The major protester at the ground DJ switch told CNN that the soldiers shot at them and killed lots of people.

Both CNN and BBC have given their own report on what happened at the lekki toll gate. While BBC reporter Damilola Banjo who was at the protest ground reported that the Army was shooting on air, but only saw one man grasping for air which she was not because of gun bullet, the CNN video said the Army actually shot at the protesters with live bullet. Though the CNN was not present at the protest ground.

So Nairalanders, watch the video report from both CNN and BBC. who is actually giving the real account of what happened at Lekki toll gate on the 20 of October 2020

Well, after both videos, I feel both have their report based on the availability of evidence present. That the BBC reporter said no one died at the lekki toll gate contradicts CNN report. But remember the BBC reporter said she was there for a little above 20mins. While CNN report said the Army shot for hours.

BBC were present at the venue and gave their report but anyone who watch the CNN report and still say there is no massacre at the lekki toll gate on that day is heartless.

It is a shame that we even have to rely on foreign journalists and TV stations to get a clearer view of what happened at the lekki toll gate.

BBC reporter said shots were fired into the air while they were there. When they left it doesn't mean the military didn't shoot into the crowd as shots fired into the air didn't deter the protesters. She gave a picture of what she witnessed only.

Easy brother. Weather you have different view from me or anyone, i believe we are all fighting for a better country through different opinions. For the record, I don't yet have a clear picture of what transpired at the lekki toll gate until the investigations are complete.
Apology if tagging you irritated you.

The BBC report does not contradict anything. She described how she left the toll gate and what she saw. She couldn't possibly see everything that happened that night, that is why the report of other eyewitnesses are important.
One thing is certain though, the army was there shooting at protesters and this is the main problem.

It not stuff we should be debating about pls, those govt officials involved should get ready for long thing, that night is too bloody for all this propaganda cover up. They should be ashamed of themselves!
