A former Director of Defence Information, Major General John Enenche, who described the #LekkiShooting incident as “photoshopped” and “cropped” has given the reasons behind his claim in 2020.
The ex-General who made the list of the 1,234 members of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, had come under fire on social media for his stance on the #LekkiShooting incident, which led Obi to declare that the LP would review the campaign council list and issue an updated list in due course.
However, Enenche released a press statement on his official Twitter page, addressing the issue raised.
He said he only declared that the shooting was photoshopped because of an oath of allegiance he swore on commission into the military service.
Enenche further stated that his cause for electing credible leaders come 2023 spurred him to declare his support openly for the LP candidate without fear, adding that he was sure that Obi and running-mate, Dr. Yusuf Datti-Ahmed, would provide quality leadership.
