He wrote THIS IS A FAT LIE FROM HER: The owner of the building @NgComCommission has faulted her lies on their social media platforms. The minister has never given that directives to any gunman. We need to be very objective in reporting. I have never sent any gunmen there, & I have no one.”

However, Dabiri-Erewa was not going to be put off that easily, as she said the minister did all he did because she is a woman.
