Nigerian comedian and comic actor Ime Bishop Umoh, popularly called Okon of Lagos, has tackled the Minister of Information Lia Mohammed after Lagos panel of Inquiry submits report on Lekki tollgate Massacre.
The panel submitted two sets of reports: a consolidated report on police brutality cases and the Lekki incident investigation.
The panel, in its report, found “From the evidence of General A.I.Taiwo (Commander, 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Nigerian Army, Victoria Island, Lagos) on pages 6, 7, 21, 22, the Panel finds that the Nigerian Army fired both blank and live bullets at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020, for the following reasons:
Apart from the military men in uniform, the Army left its base with vehicles, rifles and guns, containing live and blank bullets. General Taiwo admitted on page 22 that the Army went to the Lekki Toll Gate with live ammunition.
As of October 30, 2020, when the Panel visited the Lekki Toll Gate for its on the spot assessment, it recovered two bullets shells duly analyzed by the forensic expert hired by the Panel, Sentinel, who is very familiar with weapons used by the Nigerian Army.
These bullet shells were said to be the same as or similar to those usually used by the Nigerian Army, and they have expended shells, meaning they were fired live at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Reacting in a post shared on Instagram, Okon of Lagos expressed excitement that the truth about the Lekki Massacre is finally out.
The comic actor took a swipe at Lai Mohammed, saying he has got a tough job defending a lie, but the Lekki incident refused to be a cover-up.
