Nigerians on social media have disgraced veteran Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade over the comment she made concerning the Lekki Massacre incident.
Omotola Jalade had tweeted about how no family has come out to announce that their child was killed. According to the mother of 4, if truly people died at the Lekki massacre, their families should speak out and if no one died, then Nigerians should stop the sensationalism.
Few minutes later, Omotola who was bombarded with insults and negative comments was forced to bring the tweet down. According to Nigerians, the actress’s tweet was an insensitive one and many were disappointed.
Omotola however apologized for making such comment during a time like this.
“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” she wrote.
See how Nigerians reacted to her tweet;
