#EndSARS: Despite FG’s threats, CNN releases another report on Lekki shootings (Video)

As Federal Government continue to threatens CNN over its investigative report on the shootings at Lekki toll gate during the #EndSARS protests, the international media outfit has released a second report on the incident.

The Minister of Information and Culture,  Lai Mohammed, had last week described CNN’s report on the Lekki shootings as poor journalism, adding that the network deserved to be sanctioned.

However, the network on Tuesday did a second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The latest report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that his men indeed took live ammunition to the tollgate.

The CNN report also highlights the fact that Brig.Gen Taiwo’s claim is at variance with the minister’s who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

The fresh report also shows protesters running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
