The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this at a press conference in Abuja.
Mohammed said those who alleged massacre at the toll gate only succeeded in misleading the world.
He asked anyone who has contrary proofs to make them available to the panel investigating the matter.
The minister took a swipe at CNN for its piece on the Lekki incident, describing it as “blatantly irresponsible.”
He called for a sanction for the foreign media organisation but did not disclose where the sanction should come from.
