The federal government has threatened to sanction CNN over its report on the Lekki shooting.
On Wednesday, CNN published its investigation on the incident, alleging that soldiers used live bullets on #EndSARS protesters who had converged on Lekki tollgate on October 20.
The army insists that its men only fired blank bullets in the air to disperse the protesters.
Speaking at the news conference on Thursday, Lai Mohammed, minister of information, described the alleged killing at the Lekki tollgate as ”massacre without bodies”.Advertisement
He said CNN was irresponsible in its report.
“This should earn CNN a serious sanction for irresponsible reporting,” he said.
