Following the Lekki Massacre incident, Popular Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade took to twitter to air her opinion and unfortunately, it did not go well with Nigerians.
According to the actress’s tweet, if truly people died at the Lekki massacre, their families should speak out and If no one died, then Nigerians should stop the sensationalism.
This comment earned the mother of 4 lots of insults and dragging on social media. This made her apologize and delete the post immediately.
“I’m deleting that tweet so it’s not used wrongly. Apologies as it’s been misunderstood. Sorry about the use of “ if” . Please don’t distrust Everyone there are steadfast people . Know them. We move #endimpunityinNigeria #Endpolicebrutality #EndBadGoveranceInNigeria” Omotola tweeted
