Nigerians have lashed out at actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde over some old tweets she made concerning the Lekki Toll gate shooting.
In her old tweets, she had questioned reports about the killing, creating doubts whether the killing actually happened.
Since the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters submitted its findings on Monday, Nigerians have continued to lambast the actress.
Recall that the report of the panel indicted the Nigerian army and police, saying there was a massacre of peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020.
The panel revealed this in the report submitted to the Lagos State Government on Monday.
Omotala had urged families of the people who died at the Lekki Tollgate shootings, ‘if there were any’ to come out and speak.
She also in the tweet, admonished young people to stop with sensationalizing the killings as it doesn’t remove the crime and would further more instigate chaos.
The 43-year-old actress during the Lekki Massacre trends wrote;
‘If people died during the Lekki Toll gate 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. Why? By Whom?’
Reacting to her old tweet on the Lekki Massacre, one online user, tife.classy wrote; ‘Their people should speak out abi hanty, shey those people that most of them don’t have access to the internet, some victims parents are old and they just decide to leave the matter in God’s hand.
