Nigerians react to Omotola’s tweet about victims of Lekki shooting .
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has asked that the family members of those who died during the Lekki tollgate incident speak up.
The actress in a post via her Twitter account urged people to stop with the sensationalization if there were no deaths.
Nollywood actress and filmmaker,
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is currently receiving major backlash on social media after she took to Twitter to share a tweet concerning the tragic Lekki tollgate shooting.
According to her, “it is a Crime of Human Rights to shoot someone not pointing a gun at you or running from you.”
She also said the government will still reveal who ordered the terror on peaceful protesters.
“Now that the whirlwind is settling, let’s see clearly and sieve the facts from the sensation.
The shocking event which took place on October 20, reportedly claimed lives and left several people injured.
Due to the inconsistency in the number of casualties,
the actress in the now-deleted tweet,
urged the families of the victims to speak up if they lost loved ones.
She added that even this wasn’t the case, people should stop with the sensationalization.
“No lies, No fear.
If People died during the Lekki Toll Assault,
let their people speak out please and if there were No deaths then enough with the sensationalization because it does not remove from the Crime that happened.
Peaceful protesters were attacked and we will like to know why and by whom.”
Following the backlash,
Jalade-Ekeinde deleted the post and apologized for any misunderstanding.
“I’m deleting that tweet so it’s not used wrongly.
Apologies as it’s been misunderstood. Sorry about the use of “ if” .
Please don’t distrust Everyone there are steadfast people. Know them.
We move #endimpunityinNigeria
