The minister of Information and Culture of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Alhaji Lai Mohammed has reacted to the killings that happened last year at the Lekki Toll Gate. According to Vanguard News, Lai Mohammed claimed that the shooting of innocent protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate never happened and that it was all a cock and bull story.
Lai Mohammed who spoke at a press briefing in Abuja said that those people who claimed to have lost their loved ones during last year's protest were yet to show up a year after the allegation.
you will recall that today makes it a year after unarmed protesters were shot at the Lekki Toll Gate for protesting against police brutality.
However, Lai Mohammed may be wrong for claiming that the killings that happened last year at the Lekki Toll Gate were false.
This is because certain evidence points to the fact that the killings might have happened. For instance, there were live videos of the killings recorded at the Lekki Toll Gate last year by co protesters.
One of such recordings was done by Dj Switch who even claimed to be present at the venue where it happened.
This is why Lai Mohammed may be wrong in his claim that the shootings never happened at the Lekki Toll Gate last year.
