Lekki Shooting: 'Brain With Vibes And Sawdust,' Nigerians Blast Omotola Jalaade Over Remarks On Loss Of Lives

Nollywood screen diva, Omotola Jalade has come under attack on micro-blogging platform, Twitter over a remark on the loss of lives at Lekki tollgate, Lagos.

AllNews earlier reported that the protesters at the Lekki tollgate came under heavy gunfire, shortly after the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced a 24-hour curfew, due to perceived violence.

Reports say some died, many were injured as others fled for their lives upon the gunfire, after soldiers arrived at the protest ground around 6:30 pm on Tuesday, October 20.

In a now-deleted tweet on Friday, October 23, Omotola took to her handle to caution Nigerians against false information, stating that if people died, their families should speak out and if there were no deaths, the sensationalisation should be stopped.

"If People died during the Lekki Toll Assault, let their people speak out please, and if there were No deaths then enough with the sensationalization because it does not remove from the Crime that happened. PEACEFUL PROTESTERS WERE ATTACKED. WHY? BY WHOM! #EndImpunityinNigeria," she tweeted.

In another tweet, the mother of four, said "everyone who was involved in turning the protest into a violent rollercoaster should now be brought to book, if not then everything else is a lie! calling on journalists, investigators, NGOs, please we have work to do. No lies, no fear."

This did not sit well with some Nigerians who expressed their disappointment at the actress, with some claiming that she was paid by the government to tweet such.
