Recall that Switch allegedly fled to Canada and has been granting interviews to government bodies and media organisations concerning her experience at the Lekki Toll Gate Shooting.
Switch has come out to slam the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed for being so ‘misinformed’. This is coming after Mohammed wrote a letter on the CNN on Monday stating that the report made by the media organisation was false.
Switch tweeted on Tuesday, November 24 which is exactly one month since her last post.
“Hw can a “minister of information” be so “misinformed”?The only believable thing about him, is his name…Lai Unfortunately sir,the truth is a very stubborn thing!
“Tnk u all 4 ur well wishes & prayers.Its nt bn easy 4 me bt d need 2 #SoroSoke is more important than their bullying”
Report currently gathered by our outfit indicates that International News outlet, CNN, has released a video which goes to prove that the Nigerian Army and some police officials murdered peaceful protesters at the Lekki Too Gate after the Federal Government of Nigeria denied such claims.
October 20, 2020 will always be a a day Nigerians will never forget in their lives following the shooting place that night. CNN took it upon themselves and carried out an extensive investigation into the issue and guess what, they’ve finally released their findings to the general public which is in a form of documentary.
The Cable News Network, CNN has responded to the sanction threat made by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed concerning their report on the Lekki shooting.
CNN has said that they stand by their report and that it was carefully and meticulously researched.
Earlier today, Mohammed had said that the CNN’s report was reinforcing disinformation and it was irresponsible of the CNN to make such a report.
“Like everyone else, I watched the CNN report. I must tell you that it reinforces the disinformation that is going around, and it is blatantly irresponsible and a poor piece of journalistic work by a reputable international news organization,
“This is very serious and CNN should be sanctioned for that,” he added.
CNN has gone ahead to make another publication defending their report and has also replayed the visually report hourly on television.
The text report reads;
‘Nigeria threatens CNN with sanctions but provides no evidence,
“Our reporting was carefully and meticulously researched, and we stand by it. The report was based on testimony from dozens of witnesses, and photos and video obtained and geolocated by CNN. It painted a picture of how members of the Nigerian army and the police shot at the crowd, killing at least one person and wounding dozens more.
“CNN verified photos and videos acquired from multiple eyewitnesses and protesters using timestamps and other data from the video files. Video footage shows soldiers who appear to be shooting in the direction of protesters. And accounts from eyewitnesses established that after the army withdrew, a second round of shooting happened later in the evening.
“Prior to publishing the report, CNN tried multiple times to elicit comment from the Nigerian army and police. A Lagos State police spokesman declined to comment because of an ongoing investigation. While a statement from the Lagos State government said that there would be no comment while a judicial tribunal was underway.”
Meanwhile, Nigerians of social media have said that the Nigerian government has just annoyed the CNN as they would continue to ‘expose’ the FG regarding the truth of the Lekki Toll Gate Shooting.
Lauretta Onochie, the Special Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari has said that she’s upset because CNN thinks Nigerians are so stupid to believe their lies.
Recall that the CNN yesterday aired an investigative report analysing the scenes of the Lekki Toll Gate Shooting. Reacting to the report Onochie has said that she’s proudly Nigerian and will not be bullied into believing such lies.
She disclosed this via her Twitter page on Thursday, November 19. I’m the tweet she attached a video of the Nigerian flag with the inscription ‘proudly Nigerian’.
“I’m not upset that CNN lied to the world about my nation, Nigeria. I’m upset that they think we are so stupid that we will swallow their lies. We won’t be bullied into believing a lie! #WeAreNigerians #WeAreProudNigerians”
Nigerians have responded to this tweet, most of which have said that they aren’t part of the ‘we’ in her tweet.

The barely-healed wounds of many Nigerians have been opened as Cable News Network, CNN has released a video concerning the Lekki shooting that occurred in Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020 when #EndSARS protesters were shot at.
CNN shared a video analysing the happening that surrounded the Lekki shooting and also traced the origin of the bullets that were allegedly fired by the soldiers at the scene.
Recall that the Nigerian Army and other authorities had earlier denied been present at the scene of the shooting. The Lagos State government had previously admitted that the protesters were fired at but he stated that only two protesters died.
In the videos released today, November 18, CNN analyzed footages from the scene and also revealed that the bullet shells discovered from victims were dated 2005 and also access the ammunition purchase records of the army which allegedly shows that there were purchased from Serbia.
Currently on Nigerian social media, Nigerians are talking about the revelation most of which have started wailing all over again.

A Twitter user named While Carlos who happens to be a indigenes of Chizoba’s village posted pictures of the burial on Thursday, November 5.
“#EndSARS Chizoba Francisca Agu who was hit at the protest ground at Lekki toll gate was laid to rest yesterday in our village, Nkpologwu, Ibenda Obollo Eke, Udenu Local Government Area Enugu State. RIP sis.”
Although, people claimed that Chizoba died at the protest ground another report has it that she was hit by a vehicle on her way to Lekki Toll Gate.

Dennis Amachree, the former Deputy Director of the State Security Service in Nigeria has said that the camcorder discovered by Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, at the Lekki tollgate looks like it was internationally planted.

Amachree in an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, November 4 has express doubt concerning the origin of the camera. According him, the camera was planted, he also added that the camera was in plain view but how come no one noticed it before that particular day.
In his words;
”After so many days, we saw a camcoder in plain view. Are they saying that camera was there and nobody knew about the presence of that camera? It was in plain view and the Minister went and removed it.
“Who planted it? That is what we want to know. It was planted because there is no way..That Camcoder looks planted because there is no way that it will be plain view in one of the booths.
“How come it was there and nobody saw it. There are mobile phone providers that went there to look at their lines that were damaged. Nobody saw that camera. It is not so tiny.
“I am very interested in that camera. What is in it? Whoever planted it there must have also loaded it with something”

Well, Fani-Kayode has come out to state that a minister isn’t supposed to remove a camera from a crime scene.
FFK disclosed this via his Twitter account on Monday, October 26. He added that the truth of the Lekki shooting would only be revealed after President Muhammadu Buhari has completed his tenure.
FFK further insinuated that Fashola is forming Sherlock Holmes and Jack Baur- fictional private detectives.

National Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has suggested that when the Lekki Toll Fate is finally reopened, the revenues should be given to victims of police brutality and the Lekki shooting in particular.
Tinubu has also denied being the owner of the toll gate and also having anything to do with the shooting. This information was disclosed in a press statement released via his official Twitter account on Sunday, October 25.
“Today, I speak to those who believe in the importance of, and want to know, the truth. The slander aimed at me is based on the untruth that I own the toll gate concession. The hate mongers prevaricate that I ordered the Lekki assault because the protests had caused me to lose money due to the interruption of toll gate activity.
“The toll gate is a public asset. Given what has happened, I would like to propose to government that the toll gate be left closed for an indefinite period. If it is reopened, revenues should be donated to the confirmed victims of the Lekki attack as well as to other identifiable victims of police brutality in Lagos.
“Let government use the money to compensate and take care of those who have lost life or limb in the struggle for all citizens to go about the quiet, peaceful enjoyment of life without fear of undue harassment at this or that checkpoint,”
See tweets below;
18. I ask people to thoroughly investigate the matter of my alleged ownership of the toll gate. By seeking facts, instead of being swayed by gossip, you will find I have no ownership interest or involvement in the toll gate.
20. Let government use the money to compensate and take care of those who have lost life or limb in the struggle for all citizens to go about the quiet, peaceful enjoyment of life without fear of undue harassment at this or that checkpoint.
