EndSARs: CNN coverage over Lekki shooting disgusted me – Buhari

Advertisements

President Buhari’s tweet is coming a day after he held a closed-door meeting with all 36 state governors at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is digusted at the manner in which the foreign press handled coverage of the recently concluded #EndSARS Protest in Nigeria.

The President in a tweet via his official Twitter Handle on Wednesday said the foreign media houses did not balance their reportage on the protest.

According to him, the reports from some major foreign media firms did not attempt to lend a voice to the plight of policemen that were killed following the violence that erupted after the protest.

Advertisements

He further noted that the stations which were burnt and prisons that were opened did not make it into the reports of the foreign press.

It must be said that foreign press coverage of the ENDSARS violence was not balanced, especially from CNN and BBC.

I was disgusted by the coverage, which did not give attention to the policemen that were killed, the stations that were burnt, and prisons that were opened.

— Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) December 9, 2020

There at the meeting, the President sounded a strong warning about a reoccurrence of the EndSARS protest, saying that no responsible government will allow that to happen.

“We do not stop anyone from demonstrating, but you don’t set up roadblocks and smashing windscreens. Which government will allow that?,’’ Buhari asked.

The return of #Endsars protest started today despite warning from top personalities in Nigeria like the Inspector General Of Police and the current youngest APC governor in Nigeria, Yahaya Bello.

How wonderful that the #Endsars protest was among the top trends on Twitter.

The Inspector General Of Police in Nigeria, Mohammed Adamu is the most senior police officer in the police service.

Well, no one can blame him for his decision, Nigerians all saw the atrocities committed the last time the #Endsars protest took place somewhere in October, speaking of the burning of properties, BRT Buses among many other calamities.

Despite the IGP’s caution against the protest, Nigerians have taken the most senior police officers words as vain words as they resumed the #Endsars protest with vigour and happiness, demanding Buhari and Buratai’s resignation(Is this demand not impossible?) and justice to the killings of innocent protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.

After IGP Said He Won’t Tolerate Another Protest, Reno Omokri a former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan also an author and a lawyer, reacted to IGP’s warning on Twitter he tweeted If the Nigerian Army or Police dare kill any more peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protesters, this time, it will be Generals #Buhari and Buratai that will end up “seeing double”.

Nigerians have been pushed to the wall and they have the right to protest against an inept government. See the screenshot of his tweet below;

EndSARs: Gov’t threatens CNN over #LekkiMassacre accusations

Advertisements

The protest started peacefully but soon degenerated into violence after it was hijacked by hoodlums.

The Federal government has vowed to punish the Cable Network News, CNN for carrying out unverified information from the controversial Lekki Toll Gate incident.

It also vowed not to spare any media organization both local and international that attempted to set Nigeria on fire through unverifiable reportage.

Advertisements

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alh. Lai Mohammed made the vow on Friday at a stakeholder’ meeting with the Broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria (BON) held in Abuja.

The Minister, was reacting to the controversial report by the American Cable News Network, CNN which it said had acknowledged their letter of complaint and promised to probe same on its merit.

Advertisements

He accused CNN of spreading fake news by switching casualty figures at Lekki Toll Gate so casually without a credible source, hence, its decision to write a letter to CNN asking it to use its own internal mechanism to probe its investigation.

Mohammed insisted that “the use of unverified videos, and the non-adherence to the basic tenets of journalism have combined to land the international broadcaster, CNN, in trouble”, saying that the station had been caught in the web of fake news and disinformation, after it relied heavily on videos it took from social media for a supposed exclusive investigation on the incident at the Lekki Toll Gate on Oct. 20th.

Advertisements

He also stated that the station was found to be inconsistent, adding that “after tweeting, without a shred of evidence, from its verified handle on Oct. 23rd that soldier killed 38 peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on Oct. 20th, the same station now said only one person was killed – after a month of its investigation.”

His words: “It is baffling that an organization like CNN will rely on unauthenticated videos to carry out an investigation

Advertisements

“More worrisome is that an international broadcaster like CNN will switch casualty figures so casually without a credible source. This is why we have written a letter to CNN asking it to use its own internal mechanism to probe its investigation.

“We have received an acknowledgement of our letter, saying the letter has been referred to CNN’s Editorial Team.

Advertisements

We await the outcome of their probe, but that’s without prejudice to whatever we may decide to do as a government.

“We will not sit by and allow any news organization, local or foreign, to set Nigeria on fire with irresponsible and unprofessional reporting.

Advertisements

“CNN did not have a reporter or cameraman at the Lekki Toll Gate on the night in question, yet it emphatically reported a hoax story.

Conversely, the BBC that had a reporter and an editor on ground reported that soldiers shot into the air, not at protesters. I will rather believe the person on the ground than the one who is thousands of kilometres away.

Advertisements

“Since we sent our letter, CNN has been grasping at straws in desperation, to justify its inaccurate and unbalanced investigation.

But in the process, it is sinking more and more into professional infamy. Yesterday, Nov. 26th that is, in the clearest indication yet of the its confusion over the Lekki Toll Gate incident, CNN tried to clarify its tweet of Oct. 23rd by saying it never attributed the death toll of 38 to Amnesty International and that the tweet also did not make it clear that the death toll was for protests across the country.

Advertisements

“Commentators on the tweet tried to redirect CNN to the issue: which is its tweet of Oct. 23rd in which it said ”At least 38 people were killed in Nigeria on Tuesday (Oct. 20th) when the military opened fire on peaceful protesters.” This is very unambiguous and CNN is exhibiting panic by seeking to clarify its tweet some 35 days later! Instead of engaging in such panic, CNN should come clean by admitting that it goofed badly on the Lekki Toll Gate incident.

“But the big lesson to draw from CNN’s faux pas is that it magnifies the failure or inadequacy of our own broadcast organizations.

Advertisements

” In the wake of our spat with CNN, people are asking: Why didn’t our own broadcast stations take the lead in reporting the incident at Lekki? Why didn’t they take the lead in presenting an authentic narrative? Why must we allow the foreign broadcast stations, some of which didn’t even have correspondents on ground, to dictate the pace, thus misleading the world? These are questions begging for answers and I think for BON, this must form part of their review of the coverage of the incident.

Role of security agencies

On the role of the security agencies during and after the EndSARS protest, the Minister said they acted professionally as they also restrained themselves, which helped to save many lives, even in the face of attacks and provocation.

Advertisements

“The security agencies, in particular the police and soldiers, acted within their rules of engagement. The reporting of the EndSARS protest has been skewed against the security agencies. While most reports have become fixated on the so-called massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate, only a few have highlighted the attacks and killings of security agents, as well as the destruction of public and private property. This is selective perception and it is condemnable.

” For the record, six soldiers and 37 policemen were killed all over the country during the crisis. Also, 196 policemen were injured;

Advertisements

164 police vehicles were destroyed and 134 police stations burnt down. The killing of the policemen was particularly gruesome and dastardly. Yet, human rights organizations and the media have not given this the attention it deserved. Rather, they have remained fixated on the so-called massacre. It seems human rights do not matter for men and women in uniform. This is unfortunate and must be corrected. Please note that the violence also left 57 civilians dead, 269 private/corporate facilities burnt/looted/vandalized, 243 government dacilities burnt/vandalized and 81 government warehouses looted.”

Social media regulation

While reiterating government’s plan to regulate the social media, Mohammed assured that the administration has no plan to stifle free speech, neither does it have any intention of shutting down the internet but has decided to act to ensure a responsible use of social media.

Advertisements

“Social media has come to stay, and those who use it responsibly have nothing to fear.But we cannot give the same assurance for those who weaponize social media.

“By the way, the issue of regulating social media content is generating debate around the world, so Nigeria is not an exception.

N3m fine by NBC

On the N3m fine imposed on three television stations on the aftermath of EndSARs by National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) for using unverified and dangerous information from social media, Mohammed said two of the stations have so far paid in full, while one has paid in part.

He however, appealed to broadcast stations to avoid using unverified information from social media, as this is fraught with danger.

Advertisements

He insisted that despite the temptation, the stations must adhere strictly to the gate-keeping tradition instead of rushing to use materials that are not authenticated.

Recall with NoRM that last month witnessed an EndSARS protest by the youth, who were calling for an end to police brutality and the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Advertisements

The EndSARs protesters made five demands of: Immediate release of all arrested protesters.

ii) Justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families.
iii) Setting up an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct within 10 days.

iv) In line with the new Police Act, psychological evaluation and retraining (to be confirmed by an independent body) of all disbanded SARS officers before they can be redeployed.
v) Increase police salary so that they are adequately compensated for protecting the lives and property of citizens.

Advertisements

The Federal Government however, while responding through the Inspector-General of Police announced the immediate disbandment of SARS across the 36 State Police Commands and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Also, on Oct. 12th: President Muhamadu Buhari addressed the nation, stating: ”The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms in order to ensure that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of our people. We will also ensure that all those responsible for misconduct or wrongful acts are brought to justice.

EndSARs: Army speaks on repeating what happened at Lekki toll gate

The army had maintained that blank bullets were used to disperse the protesters who were out on the streets during the time the Lagos state government imposed a curfew.

The Nigerian Army has promised to repeat the same action it took at the Lekki tollgate if such a situation arises again.

Recall with NoRM that soldiers had forcefully dispersed #EndSARS protesters who converged on the tollgate for 13 days and it triggered an outrage within and outside the country.

When he appeared before the panel set up to probe the incident, on Saturday, Ibrahim Taiwo, commander of the 81 division of the Nigerian Army, said given the same circumstance, the army would act in a similar to that of October 20, 2020.

EndSARs: Lagos Gov’t didn’t get ‘the right information’ – Army

One day after, Sanwo-Olu said two deaths had been confirmed among the protesters in Lekki.

Ahmed Taiwo, commander of the 81 division of the Nigerian Army, says Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, was misinformed about the incident at Lekki tollgate.

Speaking on Saturday while addressing the judicial panel set up to probe the incident, Taiwo said it is not correct to say anyone died as a result of the shooting at the tollgate.

When he featured in NoRM‘s known Media TV one day after the shooting at the tollgate, Sanwo-Olu had said no one died from the incident.

But hours later, he tweeted that he had received information about the death of one person.

“Information reaching us now is that a life was lost at Reddington Hospital due to blunt force trauma to the head. It is an unfortunate and very sad loss. This is an isolated case. We are still investigating if he was a protester,” he posted on his Twitter handle.

But while being cross examined at the panel by Olumide Fusika, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Taiwo said no one died from the incident.

When the lawyer told him about Sanwo-Olu’s position on the incident, Taiwo simply said: “The governor was misinformed.”

The deputy speaker explained further that where the victims had insurance cover, they would be compensated and if they didn’t have they would still be compensated.

The Lagos State House of Assembly has met with some EndSARS victims from the Lagos Central Senatorial district to determine the level of compensation for the victims.

The Deputy Speaker, Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni, made this known during a three-day public hearing on the victims of the aftermath of the EndSARS protest in Lagos.

Recall with NoRM that the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, had on Oct. 26, constituted a nine-man Ad Hoc committee headed by Eshinlokun-Sanni.

The committee was to investigate the level of destruction of property and loss of lives with a view to determining compensation for the victims.

The Wednesday’s public hearing was attended by victims in the Lagos Central Senatorial District while Thursday and Friday will be attended by the Lagos East and Lagos West victims respectively.

Eshinlokun-Sanni, Chairman of the committee, said the terms of reference of the committee included to interface with all the victims, relevant stakeholders and community leaders and to ascertain the level of destruction.

The Deputy speaker said the purpose of the public hearing was also to ensure it brought succour and compensation by the government to the victims of the crisis.

“The committee has sent forms to the victims of the destructions across all the 40 constituencies in the state

“The House has been accepting submission of the forms, which will be the foundation of our consideration.

“We shall be leveraging on the knowledge and experiences of the experts such as architects, insurance, just to mention a few.

“They are to assess the details and make decisions on how to assuage the pains of our people,” he said.

Eshinlokun-Sanni said that the House was making a giant stride to complement other efforts and the House was garnered to display its indomitable resilience.

He said that the House had shown such character before and it was in its gene and would show it again when the need arose.

According to him, Lagos didn’t falter, instead, we rose and shone. This is another phase, another challenge, another setback, Lagos State shall rise again and shine brighter than ever.

Eshinlokun-Sanni clarified the difference between the House’s committee with that of the judicial panel set up by the Gov. Babajide Sanwo-olu.

He explained that the judicial panel was meant to unravel the brutality by the police and what transpired during the shootings at Lekki.

He said: “After the Lekki incident, we cannot leave our people, we should find ways and means of mitigating their losses.

“The primary purpose of the government is to secure lives and property. When such happens, the government must take control and mitigate the suffering of the people.

“The work of our committee is to see how the events after the Lekki shootings affected our people and how we can put them back to work so that they will not suffer more losses.

“Already, we had COVID-19 pandemic in the nation and in the state during the year,” he said.

A victim, Mr Olugbenga Oresajo, whose shopping mall was destroyed urged the committee to give a timeline that would stipulate when the whole process would end.

Shade Salami, a community leader, advised that the perpetrators of the carnage should be brought to justice to serve as a deterrent to others who might have such sinister motives.

Adeola Alaka from Bode Thomas said the areas that were affected should be barricaded to distinguish them from other parts in the same vicinity not damaged.

The governor has also denied reports that over 17 deaths were recorded during the incident, noting that only two persons died later as a result of gunshot wounds.

The African Action Congress, ACC, has asked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State to account for the dead victims of the Lekki Shooting.

Recall with NoRM that officers of the Nigerian Army opened fire on unarmed #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.

However, the army has repeatedly denied the allegation, saying its operatives only fired blank bullets into the air, not at the protesters.

But in a tweet via its Twitter page on Thursday, the opposition party said the governor lied to Lagosians that he has been to all morgues in the state and cannot find dead bodies.

The party noted that a CNN report showed that the army used live bullets on #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate.

According to the party, the Lagos governor must be held responsible for inviting the Nigerian Army to the scene of the protest and earlier denying that he has no idea that soldiers were at the toll gate. The AAC also mocked the governor and the Lagos state government for calling for the identification of missing persons.
