This remark followed the admission by the Nigerian army that it took live and blank bullets to the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos on Saturday at the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry, weeks after initially denying that its men took live bullets.
Reacting to the confession on Saturday, Omokri expressed that he is finding it difficult to determine who is a worse liar between the army and Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.
He wrote on his Twitter Page:
•We were not there
•We were there but did not shoot
•We were there and shot. But only blank bullets
•We went there with blank and live bullets, but only fired blanks
I dont know who is worse between them and Lai!#EndSARS
