Controversial Nigerian journalist Kemi Olunloyo has accused Cable News Network, CNN of allegedly stealing her investigation on the alleged Lekki killing.
CNN had delivered a narrative on the Lekki Massacre that uncover how the soldier started shooting at #Endsars protesters.
In a lengthy post on Twitter, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo accused CNN of plagiarism.
It is a shame that Nigerians do not value my work just because I’m an independent Journalist with no funding. @CNNAfrica stole footage from many Nigerians, didn’t credit anyone, pieced them together and turned it to their own story. #ijlekkimassacre is my Investigation #EndSARS
I will address @CNNAfrica today and how they plagiarized my investigation #ijlekkimassacre brainwashing Nigerians using their power of International fame and money to defame local Journalists at @PremiumTimesng @ARISEtv @GazetteNGR @KemiOlunloyo
Everything @CNNAfrica ‘s video was already investigated by local Journalists and @AmnestyNigeria but Nigerians flock to the international sensational ones. I started screaming that the bodies of #endsars protesters the army left with were being hidden all over. #ijlekkimassacre
I accused Reddington hospital of hiding bodies from people looking to identify corpses. An anonymous employee told me they were working with the army. @SaharaReporters did a bulk of the Investigation tracking bodies to Bonny Camp and when the panel got there, they moved them.
Where was @CNNAfrica when I started crying out for the bodies? @AmnestyNigeria said 12, @SaharaReporters said 20, @PremiumTimesng found several in the water @GazetteNGR @ARISEtv also posted investigations. Now Lagos State is RELEASING BODIESEyesFace with rolling eyes #LekkiMassacre #ijlekkimassacre
I was the 1st Journalist to Investigate how they moved & hid bodies before any DAMN
@CNNAfrica See time on my tweet. Nigerians were focusing on the army’s #Fakenews posts. CNN stole uncredited footage and ideas. BODIES NOW AVAILABLEAngry face I tracked them.
The day before 20/10/20
@CNNAfrica was silent. CNN kept quiet on the plight of the protesters but wanted the spotlight when their lives were ruined.
