- TVC, a TV station is owned by Bola Tinubu, has been set on fire in Lagos
- Suspected hoodlums are reported to be behind the attack
- This attack comes a few hours after some peaceful protesters were shot by security agents at Lekki
Suspected hoodlums have attacked the headquarters of Television Continental in Lagos following the killing of protesters in Lekki by security agents.
The TV station is owned by the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Meanwhile, Nigerians on social media have reacted to the attack on TVC.
"We warned! @YourViewTVC played a key role in Buhari's emergence. Since you chose to forget history, you deal with the consequence."
"The media supports evil in Nigeria, let them burn it down, every asset of these politicians should be destroyed like they destroyed those lives, since they said we won't live, they won't live as well."
"Don’t call them hoodlums! @tvcnewsng deserve the treatment for misleading the populace with half baked informations and lies as well as aiding and abating."
"The government are the ones who caused this. Is it hard for them to implement people's demands? It's only in Nigeria you see the military on the streets with guns."
"Let them burn down the place and destroy the properties, but PLEASE don’t hurt the staff. Most of them are on our side, but can’t do nothing because they need the job. These people are legit paid 70k (35k now because their salaries were slashed recently)."
"They should just cooperate with the attackers just to save their live. Don't drag with angry mob ooo."
"Good please save the staff. No matter what, they don’t deserve to be ill-treated. Some of them are genuine supporters of the #EndSARS movement."
"When you people were painting the protest bad you didn't kwn abi. Right now, after what happened yesterday, nobody cares about the moral standing everyone is angry. Violence is not an option but I can't really blame them. Tinubu is the owner of your station so connect the dots."
In another development, Legit.ng had reported that angry mob have set the headquarters of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Marina street, Lagos on fire.
