Last week, Mr Mohammed had a press conference where he attacked CNN over the documentary they released concerning the shooting incident.
While CNN insisted that the soldiers fired live ammunition at the #EndSARS protesters, Lai Mohammed said the Federal government believes the account of the Nigerian Army that they shot blank bullets and not live ammunition at the protesters. Mohammed at the press conference called DJ Switch a fraud and also asked who was ”sponsoring her”.
