Students Rioted In Lagos In 1971 Over The Death Of 2 Demonstrators (Throwback) by DebbieBianca(f): 9:43am On Nov 18
1971 footage shows student riots in Lagos, following the deaths of two demonstrators at Ibadan by the police.

In retaliation, the protesters burnt down two police posts and hunted down policemen in the city. Police officers were reported to have torn off their uniforms to escape the rioters.
Eventually the police barricaded a road into the city and arrested at least 15 students.

The original protest which was held in the university of Ibadan was about the poor standard of the catering service in the school. The protest had lasted for four days before police opened fire on 3,000 students, killing two and injuring many. These act was what led to protests in other universities.

When you fail to address issues, we ask questions. When the questions are not answered, we protest. When the protest don't work and there's a clampdown, you know the next move.

Make person tell me wetin police hold for hand no be wood be that...
Nigeria police has always been poorly managed...
Either through embezzlement or low budgeting..
Imagine maina embezzlement of police trust fund,and today nobody hears about that case..
Nigerians need to start holding their leaders by the scrotum or otherwise called balls.

A repeat performance is loading.

We need a bloody revolution in this country to instill the fear of God in the useless so-called leaders of this country; something more violent and macabre than the French revolution.

Wait o, where is Mwamaikpe? I kinda miss that dude here. 'Damnn Niggaaar', de try now sha. Now, to the topic, I don't believe there's any such thing like 'the good old days'. Terrible things have happened in the past but by default, man, just like the gold fish forgets the evil past very fast and sticks mostly to good old memories. If things weren't so, alot of persons would have given up on life learning from the not so good past. These things have been and will keep happening, we keep moving.
