In spite of irrefutably overwhelming evidence provided by on-the-spot eyewitness accounts by Nigerians, by CNN, and by the Lagos State judicial panel on EndSARS-related abuses, Misinformation Minister Lai Mohammed insists that the government-sanctioned mass murder of unarmed protesters at Lekki is “fake news” and “tales by moonlight.”
Well, since Lai is religious and believes in the power of prayers and maledictions, Nigerians should pray that the kind of “tales by moonlight” that happened to Lekki protesters last year should happen to him, his children, grandchildren, and other close family members.
If he truly believes no one died in Lekki, he should say “amen” to the prayers. After all, “tales by moonlight” are harmless.
But it seems to me that Lai, as I pointed out in a 2017 article on him, suffers from a psychiatric disorder called “pseudologia fantastica” (which is also called “mythomania”). It means chronically compulsive disposition to lying that causes liars to believe their own lies.
Lai is clearly a sick, lying, insensate, and loud-mouthed geezer who doesn’t belong in civilized society.
Anyone who can so casually and so cruelly dismiss and deny the mass murder of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, cousins, and relatives of other human beings with such primitive ease is a repulsive monster of vileness who deserves whatever evil befalls him.
