Whatsapp News

Gboyega Akosile, Chief Press Secretary to Babajide Sanwo-Olu Lagos State, has joined hashtag #LekkiLies on Twitter.

hashtag became a trend after US Department States said it could not verify if #EndSARS protesters were killed at Lekki gate in Lagos on October 20, 2020.

US department disclosed this in a report titled ‘2020 Country Reports on Practices: .’

Immediately after the report surfaced, many Nigerians took to Twitter to lament the damages the country suffered after soldiers the Nigerian Army were alleged to have carried out a massacre on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki gate.

This gave birth to the hashtag #LekkiLies with Sanwo-Olu’s aide joining in to reveal an encounter he had with his daughter.

He tweeted, “A trying time. An opportunity to know true friends, family, colleagues etc. daughter stood up to me, to ask a direct question, “dad, tell me the truth! Painfully, I told her “if I lie to other ppl in the world, I won’t lie to you.” She believed me. enough. #LEKKILIES.”

Akosile’s principal, Sanwo-Olu, had been heavily criticised on social media following the alleged action of the soldiers on the protesters.

Joining the hashtag, a Twitter user, @KemisolaAdekun1, said, “They want to register a #massacre never happened on our minds. We asked for evidence, they gave us lies and tried to blackmail us emotionally. The devastating wrecks of their original plan are still there for us to see. #LEKKILIES.”

@bengbenro said, There is nothing shameful in believing a wrong notion, it only becomes an issue if you still on to it after all evidence has shown you are wrong. Apologize for being misled on #lekkilies, mend the broken fences & move on.”

@Ahayatu said, “Two erstwhile “friends” blocked me here because I didn’t believe in #LEKKILIES now they can’t block .”

@trolls_queen said, “The Lekki lies have been properly busted by us here. need to have the US telling us what we know in our backyard.”
