Social media users have blasted Popular Nigerian actress moments after the Lagos judicial Panel released a list of lives wasted at the Lekki Toll-Gate during the #Endsars protest.
Following her statement on the Lekki Toll Gate shooting, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, a controversial Nigerian actress, was slammed by certain social media users.
While many people appealed for justice in the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre, which occurred on October 20, 2020, Omotola took to Twitter to query if people could be murdered during the nonviolent demonstration.
The mother of four also asked relatives of those who died in the tragedy to speak out and added that if no one was shot, the Lekki Toll Gate shooting should not be sensationalised.
“If people died during the Lekki Toll Assualt, let their people speak out please, and if there were no death, then enough with the sensationalisation because it does not remove from the crime that happened. Peaceful protesters were, why? by who?”
The moment the Lagos Judicial Panel released reports revealing the identities of those murdered, missing, and injured during the assault, netizens have dredged up Omotola’s tweet, with some believing she was paid by the state government to make the remark.
Meanwhile, read some reactions online;
Reno Omokri also joined forces with social media users to slam the beautiful actress.
He recently turned to his Instagram page to blast the actress for disputing the odds of Nigerian youths being murdered in cold blood during the peaceful #Endsars protest.
In his words,
“Nigerians must never forget the useless yeyebrities, who used their so called sexiness and celebrity to deny that the #LekkiMassacre ever occurred. Their actions must have consequences, or it will keep reoccurring. God bless @falzthebahdguy, @mrmacaroni1 and @djswitch_,who stayed true, while some Omoshameless character, who does not know how to use her celebrity to promote any thing that does not involve sex, was dancing on the graves of those courageous youths who sacrificed their lives during #EndSARS so that her children can have a better Nigeria!”
