Fake Journalism Institute Condemns CNN Report On Lekki Shooting by ICIRnews: 4:13pm On Nov 26, 2020
A NON-EXISTING journalism institute, International Institute for Investigative Journalism (IIIJ), has faulted the investigative report done by the US-based news giant, Cable News Network (CNN) on the October 20 shooting at the Lekki Toll gate in Lagos.

A report that has been widely shared on social media claimed that IIIJ, which did not exist until 24 hours ago, issued a press statement saying CNN report was “poor” hatchet job targeted at the Nigerian Army.

In an electronic statement signed by, Francois Deburoiche, its special rapporteur on Wednesday, the IIIJ said it came to this conclusion following a careful investigation on the events that led to the escalation of violence at the toll gate.

Checks by The ICIR however, showed that Francois Deburoiche is a pseudonym and the only reference to that name on the internet is in the press statement issued.

Also, the body that is supposedly international has no digital footprint on the internet- it has no website, nor any social media accounts such as Twitter and Facebook to identify them with.

Further checks by The ICIR revealed that an account associated with the ruling party in Nigeria, the All Progressive Congress (APC), on Twitter shared the report published by The Daily Sun newspaper from the press statement issued by the non-existing journalism institute, a report that was later deleted on the website of the newspaper due to lack of verification.

Those of us discerning already knew it was the handiwork of the incompetent and kakistocratic Buhari regime.

They expend resources and time trying to discredit the #Lekkimassacre, the #EndSARS protests and haunt protesters instead of using such scarce resources to address the root cause of the protests.

Never in the world has there been a gathering of incompetent, useless, and visionless people in government like in Nigeria today.

I go for the word “non-existence.”
