Further insisting that no lives were lost during the protest, the minister said that the families alleged to have lost a family member during the shooting have not produced a single body.

Calling for the sanction of CNN, Mohammed said that the foreign news medium relied on unverified social media videos to curate its report.

He also blamed Nigerian celebrities for aggravating the violence that consumed the nation by circulating fake news.

Recall that AllNews had on Wednesday reported that CNN released an investigation that contradicted the claims of the Federal government on the incident that happened at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos.
