Knocks As Presidency Faults Amnesty On Lekki Shootings

The Presidency said Thursday Amnesty International does not run the country and was wrong in its report on the movement of soldiers from their barracks to Lekki Toll Gate, where peaceful #EndSARS protesters were shot at on Tuesday, October 20.

Consequently, the Presidency, which rejected the report, alleging that it was skewed, also said the global rights body cannot have more facts about things happening in the country than the President.

However, some civil society organisations, CSOs, has asked the Presidency not to be in a hurry to dismiss the Amnesty International report. Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has given ministers a one-week ultimatum to submit reports of consultations with their constituents on the #EndSARS protests which was hijacked by hoodlums in different parts of the country, causing a breakdown of law and order.
