In her now deleted tweet after being dragged online, she said;
IF People died during the Lekki Toll Assault, let their people speak out please and IF there were No deaths then enough with the sensationalization because it does not remove from the Crime that happened. PEACEFUL PROTESTERS WERE ATTACKED. WHY?. BY WHOM!
In Subsequent follow-up tweets Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde said;
EVERYONE who was involved in turning the protest into a Violent Rollercoaster should Now be brought to book! If not, then everything else is a LIE! Calling on journalists, investigators, NGOs, pls we have work to do. No lies. No Fear.
While the Govt. said SARS had ended and claimed to under say our agitation. The people sent to rein in the enraged rioters on the streets were EXECUTING them! This is a Crime of Human Rights! You do not shoot someone NOT pointing a gun at you or running from you #Endimpunity
However, Nigerians on Twitter were not having any of these as they were follow-up comments full of rage and cancellation.

and @trending_medic asked “Who even gave Omotola a doctorate degree?”
