Falz Reacts To New Report Indicting Army Of Shooting Live Bullet At Lekki Tollgate



Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, better known by his stage name Falz, has berated the Federal Government for consistently denying reports of killing at Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020.

Recall that the Federal Government through the minister had consistently denied reports of a massacre at the toll gate.

Mohammed had described the claim by Amnesty International that no fewer than 12 protesters were killed at the toll gate by security operatives during the EndSARS protest as a “massacre without bodies”.

He had also threatened to sue Cable News Network (CNN), Nigerian Disc Jockey, DJ Switch and other media houses that claimed soldiers shot at peaceful protesters.

But a report submitted by the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state punctured the minister’s claim.

According to the panel, at least 48 protesters were either shot dead, injured with bullets wounds or assaulted by soldiers who stormed the Lekki toll gate last year.

Taking to his Instagram stories, on Monday, the 31-year-old Nigerian rapper cum comic actor slammed the federal government for making young people who voiced issues regarding the shootings feel insane about their collective conviction on the Lekki Massacre. 

He wrote; ‘These animals legit made us doubt our sanity about the Lekki Massacre you know. Panel don compiles their reports na.. We gather dey’
