    What does the Lekki toll gate report mean for Nigeria?

    A leaked report by an inquiry panel found that Nigerian armed forces shot and killed #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate in October 2020.
    The report refers to the incident as a massacre.
    But Nigeria’s information minister Lai Mohammed has dismissed the report as a ‘triumph of fake news’.
    He denies that soldiers fired live bullets at protesters.

    Is it time to rethink ecotourism?

    But some critics are questioning whether conservation and tourism are too dependent on each other.
    And whether indigenous people are being treated unfairly to make space for conservancies.
