The Cable News Network, CNN, has been accused by Coalition Against Fake News and for having a bitter agenda against the Nigerian government.
The coalition remarked in response to a Cable News Network, CNN, and an investigative report on the Lekki toll gate shooting.
Following the military’s denial of shooting and killing the #End SARS peaceful protesters, Cable News Network, CNN, had released an investigative report that contradicted the position of the Nigerian Army.
However, the group said Cable News Network’s report was an indication that some vested interests are determined to destabilize Nigeria.
The statement was titled: “CNN and its bitter agenda in Nigeria,” signed by Comrade Finba Edmond, the group’s Executive Convener, accused CNN of spreading fake news.
The statement reads partly: “Issues must be put in proper perspective for the generality of members of the public, and under no circumstance should Fake News be allowed to fester due to its negative consequences.
“It must be stated that indeed there is a sinister motive by some vested interests to destabilize Nigeria, and these individuals and groups have been most ferocious in this enterprise, not minding the socio-economic implication of their actions.
“Sadly, CNN has ironically joined the bandwagon of fake news promoters with its recently released video alleging that soldiers used live bullets and fired into the crowd of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Tollgate.”
