Damini Ogulu, an Afrofusion singer better known as Burna Boy, has taunted the Nigerian government’s fight against misinformation, saying “they tell more lies than Satan”.
The 29-year-old musician, who has been vocal about the recent protests against police brutality, took to his Twitter page on Wednesday to pour out his annoyance over the conflicting reports that have trailed the shooting at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, according to The Cable report.
On October 20, the army had opened fire on unarmed youth who had stationed at the toll gate for nearly two weeks to protest against the now-disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS).
There have been conflicting reports on the actual casualties after the shooting which has continued to attract global condemnation.
Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state, had said that the footage of the shooting shows the army was responsible for the incident.
This was after the army had denied any involvement in the incident, dismissing multiple reports as “fake news” via its Twitter handle.
In a tweet, Burna Boy said: “They say Fake news, fake news but you are The ones who have made Fake promises and Told more Lies than SATAN since the beginning of “Democracy”. You see say This life no Balance.”
