The Minister of Information, Alhai Lai Mohamed, has dismissed the report submitted by the Lagos State EndSARS panel on Police Brutality as a hoax, which did not follow the evidence at hand.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, he said the report submitted to Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu is a rehash of already circulating fake news.
Mohammed maintained that instead of sitting for one year, the panel should have just compiled social media reports and wound up. The minister alleged that the report is ridden with discrepancies, innuendos, inconsistency and errors.
He wondered what the panel meant by its conclusion of “masacre in context,” declaring that it can only be a “phantom masacre.” The minister remarked that the report did not make any recommendations for innocent victims k*lled in Lagos, saying that it cannot be relied upon.
