Oby Ezekwesili, a former Minister of Education, has reacted to a statement by the Nigerian government demanding that CNN be sanctioned.
Minister of Information, Mr. Lai Mohammed, on Thursday said CNN should be sanctioned for its investigations which he described as “irresponsible journalism.”
The Minister also insisted that there was no mass killing at Lekki toll-gate, adding that it was “massacre with no bodies.”
However, reacting, Ezekwesili mocked the government over its threats at CNN.
She queried the reason for judicial panels on #EndSARS crisis if the government has closed its minds to information based on evidence.
On her Twitter page, she wrote: “Sanction CNN *laughs* But then again, it is not even funny because it is too serious a matter to allow for this comedy.
“What’s really the point of the ‘Independent’ Panels of Inquiry if the @NigeriaGov @FMICNigeria have already closed their minds to information based on evidence?
