Parade protest

 

It's all fake news fumes top Nigerian leader despite this video

At the time when they is lots of technologies which can expose the truthfulness of one crane claim, the world was treated to some unbelievable news on the 23rd of November 2021.

One leading official came out guns blazing on the news while making a claim which was far from the truth. Social media platforms had been awash with videos of how brutal the police have been of late in African countries.

This triggered mass protests coupled by social media campaigns thereby exposing the abuse of Human rights. In a report which was published by SAfm News today, Nigeria's Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has dismissed as fake, the leaked report of an inquiry, which found that the armed forces had carried out a massacre at a protest against police brutality in Lagos last year.

Protesters had gone on to the streets carrying out peaceful protests demanding the disbandment of a brutal police force in Nigeria called the SARS. There has been overwhelming evidence which showed that live ammunition was used on residents who were protesting.

A leaked report was published which said that the armed forces intentionally shot anti-police brutality demonstrators at the Lekki toll gate in October 2020, and then tried to cover it up. The Nigerian leadership is believed to have been attempting to cover up its brutality from the international community.

President Muhammadu Buhari has been silent on the issue but pressure groups and human rights activists have been on his case demanding answers for the senseless killings. Nigerian police is rated among the worst in Africa in terms of its brutality. The youthful generation has at many times advocated for a change in the way they are treated but little is being done in this troubled country.

It is most likely that those who were responsible for ordering the shootings will in years to come be charged with crimes against humanity as is the norm with African leadership when they are toppled.
