Nigerian Government has finally released the official figures of Nigerians Youths killed in the violence that occurred after the #End SARS protests went awry.
Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information, provided the details on Thursday.
Mohammed accused the foreign news Medium (CNN) of looking the other way even though security operatives and civilians died during the riot.
“In its jaundiced reporting, CNN was blind to the fact that six soldiers and 37 policemen were killed in unprovoked attacks.”
He said despite arresting hordes of looters during the violence in Lagos, the Nigerian Army arrested and treated protesters and tugs humanely before handing them over to the police.
Mohammed stressed that the same could not be said of those that brutally killed security personnel.
“Six soldiers and 37 policemen were killed all over the country during the crisis. This is in addition to 196 policemen who have been injured; 164 police vehicles were destroyed and 134 police stations that were razed.”
The minister criticized human rights organizations, adding that they became suspicious after “ignoring” law enforcement officers’ killings during the Lagos crisis.
Lai Mohammed announced that 269 private/corporate facilities burnt/looted/vandalized, “left 57 civilians dead, 81 government warehouses looted, 243 government facilities burnt/vandalized and instead continued to dwell on the bodiless and bloodless ‘massacre’ at Lekki Toll Gate.”
He added that they did not see anything wrong in the private and public properties that were burnt or looted.
The minister noted that all they could see in their “biased view” of the whole situation was a “hoax massacre.”
