Omokri claimed that Buhari ordered the killing of the protesters “out of self interest.”
He based his claim with Buhari’s comment on the protest.
The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, in a tweet wrote: “To prove to you that Buhari personally ordered the #LekkiMassacre of innocent, unarmed, peaceful #EndSARS protesters, just go and rewatch his June 10, 2021 AriseTV interview, where he accused #EndSARS protesters of wanting to “remove me”. Buhari killed them out of self interest!”
