According to report reaching oyogist.com, President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has accused Amnesty International (AI) of a deliberate plot to destabilise Nigeria.
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made the accusation on Friday in Lagos on TV Continental.
He said: “We challenge Amnesty International, if it has any proof, to please come forward with such names, addresses and convincing evidence that people were killed at the toll gate. A coterie of NGO, led by Al, has been dispensing fake news about what transpired at the toll gate.”
He noted that more than 100 days after the incident, “we are yet to see anybody come out to say my son, my daughter or my ward went to the toll gate plaza to protest and has not come back.”
“Amnesty International has no respect for our judicial system. If they do, they would have gone to testify rather than churning out fake reports and arriving at baseless conclusions even before the panel has commenced its job.”
