EndSARS Lekki Killing: CNN Lawyers Demand Open Apology From Lai Mohammed

In a statement on Tuesday, the CNN counsel
said the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters report had vindicated the organization’s investigative report, titled, ‘How a bloody night of bullets and brutality quashed a young protest movement’.

“Alhaji Lai Mohammed should eschew his pride and apologize to the CNN if he has any integrity left,” Babalola said.

He added, “He has consistently claimed that the CNN’s report of the massacre was false, but the panel has vindicated the CNN’s position on the gruesome and wanton killings at the Lekki Tollgate.

“Without necessarily saying more on this, since
the same minister had earlier called on the CNN to apologize for fake news, which has now been quasi-judicially proved to be true, one would think the honorable thing for Alhaji Mohammed to do, as an elder statesman and learned gentleman, is to apologize to the CNN
especially.

“However, as we continue to wait on the
minister and the Federal Government’s next
move, I sympathize with families of all the
victims of the Lekki massacre, while we pray for the souls of the departed and hope the
government implements the report in full.”
“In the light of the report by the judicial panel,
Mohammed ought to eat the humble pie and
apologize to the CNN.”
