The call made by the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) follows the report of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry into the October 20, 2020 massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos State.

The report released on Monday indicted the men of the Nigerian Army and Nigeria Police Force of having killed and maimed harmless youths protesting police brutality and bad governance in Nigeria.

Despite the Federal Government’s stance, the report shows obvious evidence that there was indeed a massacre at the Lekki tollgate.

HURIWA advocated Mohammed’s dismissal, arrest, and trial for his appalling falsehood which has now been contradicted by the #EndSARS judicial panel in Lagos.

The statement reads; “Huriwa is asking President Muhammadu Buhari as a biological father of many well-educated children, to order the arrest and prosecution of his minister of information Lai Mohammed for committing a grave and heartless offence that is equivalent to the denial of the Holocaust of the 6 million Jews by Adolf Hitler which is punishable by nearly half a century of incarceration.”
