Cable News Network (CNN) has released to the public a second investigative report on the shooting of peaceful #EndSARS protests at Lekki toll plaza, despite threats of sanction from Federal Government over its first report.

CNN had earlier published on Wednesday, November 18 which gave a graphical account of what transpired on the weekend night of Tuesday, October 20 at the Lekki tollgate, including video, pictorial evidence and interviews with victims and their relatives.

CNN’s report also addresses the fact that Brig. Gen Taiwo’s claim is at variance with the minister’s who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.
