Lagos EndSARS Panel Report fake, Unverified- FG

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has described the leaked report of the Lagos State panel as fake news.

The minister made the position of the government known at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday.

The nine-member panel had in its leaked report alleged that at least nine persons were killed at the Lekki toll plaza when soldiers and policemen stormed the scene to disperse protesters on October 20, 2020.

However, Mohammed described the allegations as “tales by moonlight”.

Mohammed said it was shocking that the same allegations made by Nigerians were merely compiled and submitted as a report by the panel set up to investigate the claims of police brutality.
“It is an intimidation of the majority by a minority,” Mohammed submitted.
