The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has described EndSARS report of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry (JPI), as “fake” and “tales by moonlight.”
Mohammed, stated this while addressing a press conference in Abuja, on Tuesday, insisting that there was no “massacre” at the Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020.
The nine-member panel had, recently submitted its report to the Lagos State government, but which had since been leaked to the public.
In the leaked report, the panel had alleged that at least nine persons were killed at the Lekki toll plaza when soldiers and policemen stormed the scene to disperse protesters on October 20, 2020.
But, Mohammed, who had said there was no proven record of killing dismissed the panel’s claim, as he rather described the allegations as “tales by moonlight.”
