Nigerian investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has lambasted the Cable News Network stealing her work and and lying that 38 people were killed at the Lekki Tollgate Shooting of October 20.
Olunloyo said that the CNN apparently used their so called investigation to shade clout, she also added that they traced where the bullets fired were purchased but they have failed to show up at the #lekkimassacre panel.
Recall that the CNN had early released their investigative report where they analyzed tons of videos from the shooting and also traced the bullets fired to Serbia where the Nigerian Army has been securing them from. Lai Mohammed had earlier berated the CNN for making use of videos posted by Nigerians on social media while the labelled it as an ‘investigative report’.
Taking to her social media pages on Saturday night, December 12 Olunloyo said that the CNN is now afraid so much so that they have backed down. She also stated that many Nigerian media organisations already investigated the shooting but Nigerians chose to be brainwashed by CNN who earlier said that they were busy covering the US elections
She wrote on Instagram;
After stealing my work and tons of eyewitness videos on the domain. A WHOLE CNN fails to show up to the #lekkimassacre panel. Even the army showed up. A panel we got Segalink to institute for SARS victims like me now ignored by the fake news network. Sadly most of you never listened to me that CNN used #endsars for clout.
“Remember what they said in the beginning? They were too busy with the US elections. Once their fave Biden won, they jumped on the #EndSARS bandwagon claiming the best investigation while you were brainwashed not noticing stuff we already investigated. AriseTV, Kemi Olunloyo, Sahara Reporters, Premium Times etc. CNN will help the ICC dismiss this Lekki case easily. See why Lai Mohammed is calling them liars, they reported 38 dead that night. Respect good journalists. I’m out of this market now.”
“@CNNAfrica how market?
The fear is real😁 The panel can summon reporters. You knew where the bullets were purchased. You stole my work and everyone else. You lied that 38 were killed You are helping the case get dismissed at the ICC You are DAFT! #EndSARS”
