Which work do you want people to return to?

Answer: The work they may get one day because the city is still standing. Destroying the city will guarantee no work, ever.

Lagos attracts people from all over West Africa, deport some of them so that there will be jobs for Nigerians. The sentiment is horrible but never forget that many of these foreign Africans often praise South Africa when South Africa deport Nigerians, sighting that Nigerians take South African jobs.

my brother police will surely kill innocent people- no be naija police again?

but are they supposed to kill in quelling down riots and mass burglary? what happened to rubber bullets? tear gas? in the US - BLM and Antifa protesters looted stores in broad daylight (am not saying it’s ok to steal) but is the excessive use of lethal force by the Nigerian Police commensurate with the crime committed? absolutely NO!

Those days Nigeria police use bartons and shield (they wear riot gear) to confront protesters - now it’s the lazy and easy way out of gunning down people recklessly - because police sef never chop, dem no get power to push back


what am I even saying - we are talking about the zoo here, shiorrrrr

We are talking about looters destroying private investment and not protesters. Have you forgotten that there is a curfew in Lagos? Do you the extent of the damege they can do to the owner of the business? If they were able to lay their hands on any policemen, they will lynch him so they deserve what they got!

You're talking like someone that has a PhD in Illiteracy. So the guns given to police are for killing anybody anytime they want? Shame! You know nothing and you don't even know you know nothing. The fact that a police man has a gun is NOT a free licence to kill. Get that FACT into your head.

Ok, let's even assume, if your statement is true, then why does the Police have an accountability system for the fire arms in the officer's possession? Why do they have to account for bullets, why do they have to account for their usage of the guns? Why does the prohibition of use of excessive force exist? Why do they have an internal mechanism and panel that probes any act of killing done by an officer to determine if he is guilty or not? Why do they have RULES OF ENGAGEMENT?

Let me educate you free of charge out of the kindness of my heart. A police man DOESN'T have the freedom or power or right to kill anyone anyhow anytime he likes. He doesn't even have the power to shoot UNTIL certain conditions are met or certain actions or situations take place. There are RULES OF ENGAGEMENT for shooting. Depending on the situation, he can shoot to immobilize, he can shoot disarm, he can shoot to scare, or IN EXTREME situations he can shoot to kill IN SELF DEFENSE or to prevent a violent attacker from killing him or from killing another innocent person.

And for every person a police man shoots to kill, he has to give account before the internal panel of inquiry who will investigate whether his killing was lawful (that is to say, according to the laid down rules of engagement) or not. If found to be unlawful, he will face an orderly room trial or internal disciplinary committee who will pass judgement on his case and he will be dismissed AND THEN he will be charged to Court and prosecuted for murder. That's how the system works, that's the LAW of the land. We are not a lawless society where armed vigilantes kill anyone anyhow anywhere anytime without recourse to the law or accountability for their actions.

If a police man has a free license to kill anybody anyhow they like, so why do they try to cover up a killing that is unjustified or illegal? Why do they plant guns to frame up a dead body? Why do they lie and say a criminal engage them in a shootout to justify their use of the guns and killing? It is because THEY DON'T HAVE A FREE LICENSE TO KILL. If they kill, they must give account, if they give account and are found guilty of not following due process, then they are in serious trouble and will be charged for MURDER.

If a person attacks police with dangerous weapons or guns and is shot dead in the process, then the killing falls within a necessary shooting, JUSTIFIABLE BY LAW, not by the emotions or whims or I can do whatever I want attitude of the officer involved. If a person is looting, that is stealing, that is a crime. If a person is breaking into shops to loot, that is trespassing, vandalism and theft. BUT it is not a capital offense according to the laws of Nigeria. A vandal and thief is not worthy of death by law. And a vandal and thief caught by police who makes an attempt to escape is also not punishable by DEATH according to the law. Your feelings about it is IRRELEVANT, your emotions about it DOESN'T COUNT! It is the established laws of the land that police follows, not their emotions or your own opinion and feelings. And the law does not say that a police should shoot to kill a crimal looter or thief stealing and vandalizing govt or people's property. Anything outside of this is illegal.

A police man is not an officer of himself. A police man is an officer of the LAW, and must always obey the law or be punished by the same law. He is empowered by law and to whom much is given, much is expected. With great power comes great responsibility. A police man is held to a higher standard than the criminal. A criminal breaking the law IS NOT a surprise. That's why such a person is called a criminal. Crime = break the law. A police officer = upholds the law. You cannot be a police officer and a criminal at the same time. And this is why there is so much problem with policing in our societies and this your mentality is exactly the reason why Nigeria IS NOT civilized.

You are just deliberately doing. Where did you read the bolded part?
Re: Police Kill 5 Looters In Ikotun, Arrest Scores by imagrg: 4:22pm On Oct 23, 2020
Mindless looting is not peaceful protest at all!
Please don't truncate the objective of the protest for a better Nigeria.
The president has appealed for calm in the country. Calm down and let's expect his response please.
Peace please.
So, help us God.

I swear to god it happen in my area...they pack slot item...expensive phones

I hope to God that SLOT and other shopowners track the phones down. Skip tracing will reveal the thief along the line. The effort will be worth it as such people need be taken off the street. Anyone that can break into a shop violently needs be taken off the streets because they are potential thieves and if they see a gun, will transpose into Amred Robbers without a doubt.

This is exactly the EXTRAJUDICIAL killings we are talking about. If looting is a capital offense that warrants shooting to kill at sight, then why didn't they shoot at those bloody criminal looters in Abuja and all the States in this country looting billions from the public treasury? Are they not supposed to be arrested and charged to Court? The LASG judicial panel needs to arrest the officers behind this killings, otherwise they will continue killing people anyhow and whenever they like.

Well said!

Our forces are still trying to learn how walk professionally. Massive reforms needed there, its not just salary increment. Mind and spirit works, then finance aids will ultimately make our police what it should be

We need massive re-orientation in this country apparently. We blame lack of this emotional intelligence on our poorly funded schools with cyllabus of the 19th century.

Your comment is extremist. Not good for a society. Apprehend them and prosecute them. Evidence about so the case will be a walk over at the courts.

It's a moment to bring about revolution and your corrupt leaders to be scared of their black hairy behind, force through a reform or bequeath a more useless country to your kids and grandkids.

The country I bailed out from decades ago when I already saw it nose-diving into the abyss was 5 times better than the jungle you people have now. Yet you cannot see it. Shame.

Nothing in the store of your idiotic leaders is worth anything to me.

I donnot support looting in any form , but when a protest last more than 72hrs without any means to address demands , everything you are seeing now it's prone to happen, so unfortunate to those innocent people whose hardwork has been looting.

Beware southerners. This is the time to know and understand the true identity of those who cause tribalism on here, they are paid agents, they are neither from east or west. They have more than twenty accounts, they would create tribal topics and make tribal comments with another accounts to cause chaos between southerners. Though, they have no conscience but you can try to educate them or better ignore them. They are easy to identify, use your head brothers.

Also Be aware that tactics and plans has been deployed to cover up the massacre since all their efforts to break southern unity were not fruitful. They have created a lot of Facebook and Twitter accounts with Yoruba or Igbo names for this purpose, one of them is to post pictures or video of people who debunked being killed, those pictures were scripted and earlier been circulated for this purpose. They would discredit real occurrence and give it another title and narratives. Beware of the propaganda

Anybody found looting shops, banks, businesses...should be shut dead. We are all in this mess together for Christ sake! Looting wasn't part of the protest for a better Nigeria. Those bastard hoodlums have scuttled the objectives of the protests. Shoot the idiots.

look how disgusting blacks think!!!
hoodlums and looters should be shot dead,does any law support that,wtf has happened to your sense of justice!why not arrest and make them face the wrath of law..

so much injustice in these nation,nothing,not a single person is normal,all we think about when provoked is kill,kill,kill.
you try to restore peace,law and order in a society by grossly breaching law ethics,rule of engagement and human rights stands,I wonder if that would bring a lasting result without subtle societal consequences.
