Whose interest is CNN trying to protect?

Their post isn’t straight forward.

@Clashes between protesters and law enforcement;

was there ‘clash’ or law enforcement’s attack on harmless protesters?

No wonder Trump’s never talks good of them

I expected it from CNN. Very evil organization. Unarmed, innocent protesters gunned down and CNN said clashes.

Ambode has been vindicated. Sanwo-olu is truly a Mad Man. if after this massacre and impotent Buhari, mental Sanwo-olu and coward Buratai are not prosecuted in ICC then the international community has failed humanity. Buhari must go

When these so-called unarmed protesters attacked Governor's convoys, blocked roads and denied people legitimate rights to freedom of movement, burnt down Jaiz Bank, burnt down police station, break up Correctional centre and even released Criminals no one care to caution them on what the Government can do to avert this political orchestrated protest.

You are still expecting elected Government to be begging these set of people.

You can't be demanding for Good Governance and at the same time bringing down public and private infrastructures.

How was it a clash.

Did the protesters carry guns and cutlass? Because the last thing I remember was that they were holding the national flag, sitting on floor while singing the national anthem when army opened fired on them.

So how was it a clash? You don’t want to tell the whole world how it is for political reasons i guess. Silly media house, no wonder Trump will forever be your nightmare.

WHAT TO DO FOR NOW?
I suggest that YOU back out of the protest for now.
The Nigerian youths have made their presence felt and their voices heard.
A wise performer leaves the stage when the ovation is high.
Let's not allow bad eggs to spoil our achievements so that we can successfully build on this in subsequent months and years

And this is only for genuine protesters, not hoodlums releasing hardened criminals from jail just to cause further mayhem.
Naija youths, we will this at the end.
We are not asking for too much, we are only asking for a better Nigeria.

Lipscomb:
I'm begging the protesters to stop too. If their demand not implement by Government they can resume the protest again.

I'm sad to seeing the blood of our brothers.
Exactly my point.

And let me shock you shocked
This will be the very first time the presently TOP 2 pro PDP and pro APC member on Nairaland actually agreed on the same thing since 2015 as shown below!

Interesting times.
I hope Nigerian youths that are part of us, the real protesters out there listen to the good advice.
