The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has slammed Amnesty International, advising them to provide proofs of the alleged Lekki massacre or shut up.

Mohammed’s comments came after the Non-governmental organization (NGO), while marking 100 days of the incident, accused the federal government of covering-up those responsible for the #Lekkishooting which reportedly claimed the lives of about 12 protesters.

Mohammed in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Abuja, accused AI of disinformation and double standard adding that the NGO has no proof to justify its claim that 12 people were killed by the military at the incidence.

“If Amnesty International has any proof, it should come out with it or shut up.

“After a lot of dilly dally, Amnesty International said 12 people were shot at the Lekki Toll Gate.

“They should take advantage of the Judicial Panel of Enquiry set up by Lagos state to tell the names and addresses of the 12 people they claim were shot at the toll gate.’’

“When Nigeria wanted to arrest and prosecute those hoodlums responsible for the killings of 37 Policemen, six Soldiers during the EndSARS protest, Amnesty International will find fault.

“At the Lekki toll gate incident in Lagos, they described the hoodlums as peaceful protesters, while the people who invaded capitol hill in the US were called insurrectionists.

“When the U.S. Government denied the investigators from the International Criminal Court visa to enter the U.S., we did not hear a word from Amnesty International.

“They will soon lose their respect and credibility if they continue to operate this double standard,’’ he said.
