Olowu Faults CNN’s Report On EndSARS Protest

Olowu of Kuta, HRM Oba Adekunle Makama, has faulted the CNN Report On the EndSARS Protest as an attempt to stir another round of unrest in the country.
Olowu in a statement issued by his media office in Osogbo on Wednesday said the so called investigative report on the EndSARS Protest fell short of the standard that is known with the CNN over the years.
He contended that CNN should allow the judicial panel set up by Lagos state government to conclude its finding.
His words, “ I think the CNN should unravel the truth that will help in finding lasting solution to the crisis instead of fueling it, albeit through Report that is neither here, nor there.
“It’s an incontrovertible fact that you cannot talk of massacre without dead bodies to corroborate the narrative. All those who were alleged to have died in the ‘massacre’ have come out to debunk it as the figment of the imagination of those who packaged the fake news. In fact, another well meaning Nigerian has challenged those who lost loved ones to come forward so that the matter should be resolved once and for all.
“ While it’s a welcome development the attempt by CNN to carry out its lawful duty, it must also be in tandem with established protocol and convention. Media is a public trust and the popular dictum of ‘when you are in doubt, leave out’ must be upheld all the time as ethical standards.
“ The Nigerian Army has been vilified by international organizations severally for carrying out its lawful duty within the arm-bit of Law despite the transparency of its leadership. If the CNN is interested in unraveling the truth, it should make its finding available to the Lagos judicial panel instead of using an old videos that have failed to pass integrity test to hoodwink the unwary.
