Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, a famous Nigerian actress, was criticized by some netizens for her comment on the Lekki Toll Gate shooting.
While lots of people called for justice to be served on the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre that happened on the 20th of October, 2020, Omotola had taken to her Twitter account to question the possibility of people being killed during the peaceful protest.
The mother of four also urged the family of those who lost their relatives during the incident to speak up and also said stated that if nobody was shot, then people should stop the sensationalization of the Lekki Toll Gate shooting.
Her tweet reads,
“If people died during the Lekki Toll Assualt, let their people speak out please, and if there were no death, then enough with the sensationalisation because it does not remove from the crime that happened. Peaceful protesters were, why? by who?”
Now, with the emergence of reports presented by the Lagos Judicial Panel which revealed the names of people who were killed, missing, and injured during the assault, netizens have dug out this tweet made by Omotola as some are of the view that she was bought by the state government to make the statement.
