According to report reaching OYOGist.com, the Nigerian government have now petitioned the US based Cable News Network (CNN) for its news coverage of the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre which the Nigerian authority termed as a false report.
The federal government stated that the cable news network (CNN) breached the basic core principles of professional journalism. “CNN breached the most basic of the core principles of journalism – balance and fairness.”
The Nigerian government has now demanded an immediate and exhaustive investigation from CNN into its ‘investigative’ report on the Lekki Toll Gate incident to determine, among others, its authenticity.
It should be recalled that the CNN had earlier shown a visual record of the Lekki Massacre in a live broadcast which went viral on the social media. The video evidence reportedly angered the Nigerian authorities who have now petitioned the US based News network.
