Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has received backlash on social media from fans objecting her latest post where she called on people who lost their loved ones during the violent crackdown at Lekki toll gate to speak up.

The Nollywood actress, who was reacting to the state government’s report that said one person died as a result of the gunfire incident on Twitter, ignited a storm after she urged people to stop with the sensationalization if there were no deaths.

Her comments came as eyewitnesses insist that there were more people who died during the attack by soldiers on Tuesday evening.

“While the Govt said SARS had ended and claimed to under say and our agitation, The people sent to rein in the enraged rioters on the streets were EXECUTING them! This is a Crime of Human Rights! You do not shoot someone NOT pointing a gun at you or running from you! #Endimpunity

“EVERYONE who was involved in turning the protest into a Violent Rollercoaster should Now be Brought to book ! If not, then everything else is a LIE ! Calling on journalists, investigators, NGOs pls we have work to do. No lies , No fear. #NewNigeriaisstillpossible #Focus #Letsgo

“If People died during the Lekki Toll Assault , let their people speak out please and if there were No deaths then enough with the sensationalization because it does not remove from the Crime that happened. PEACEFUL PROTESTERS WERE ATTACKED. WHY? BY WHOM ! #EndImpunityinNigeria,” she wrote.
