Minister Of Information Accuses CNN Of Desperation Over Report

Lai Mohammed has acclaimed CNN’s second report as an effort that was sourced out of desperation. He has accused them of being desperate to build a big community of information especially in Nigeria.

On Tuesday, CNN released a second report on the Lekki toll plaza shootings that happened on October 20. They released the second report after Federal Government threatened to sanction CNN on the previous report.

As a response to the reports, Lai Mohammed accused them that their reports were birthed out of desperation for fame. He also added that all these reports are baseless and lack credible evidences.

When asked about the second CNN’s report, Mohammed said, “It shows that they (CNN) are desperate. The so-called recent development has been seen before. There is nothing new. If there is anything new, it is a contradiction of CNN’s position.

“What we are asking CNN is that where is your evidence? The military has been consistent. CNN contravenes the basic principles of journalism – fairness, and balance.

“They did the story without contacting the Federal Government for its own side. They relied on second and third parties narratives.

“They (CNN) were caught spreading fake news and they are trying to escape.

“We are accusing them (CNN) of basing their stories on videos sourced on social media. CNN has been inconsistent. It also doctored the video it got”.

In the second report, ‘Analysis of CCTV footage from Lekki toll gate raises new questions about shooting’, CNN covered and analized the stories using the CCTV footage evidences they have to compare with the social media videos that some local TV stations were banned from using then.

They also tried to affirm, through the video, what Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo told the court of law that the Nigerian Army took live ammunition to the toll gate.
