“ I was disgusted by the coverage of CNN, BBC on #EndSARS” – Buhari says



President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has taken to his official Twitter page to blast foreign media house for not doing a proper coverage of the #EndSars protest.

He said he is disgusted with the coverage of #EndSARS protests by foreign media especially the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and America’s Cable News Network (CNN).

According to him, the reports from some major foreign media firms did not attempt to lend a voice to the plight of policemen that were killed following the violence that erupted after the protest.

He further noted that the stations which were burnt and prisons that were opened did not make it into the reports of the foreign press. He wrote;

“It must be said that foreign press coverage of the ENDSARS violence was not balanced, especially from CNN and BBC. I was disgusted by the coverage, which did not give attention to the policemen that were killed, the stations that were burnt, and prisons that were opened.”
