Taiwo said a portion of the troops that operated at the toll gate on that night were indeed armed with live bullets.

He, however, maintained that only soldiers with blank bullets fired shots into the air.

WAS HE THERE WITH THEM?
THEY WERE NEVER IN THE FIELD BUT WILL SAY IT LIKE THEY WHERE THERE

All these stories na just beating about the bush.

The real question is: Who are those soldiers and Who gave them the order?

Yes we know the army fired but the questions still remain.

Where are the victims said to have been murdered in Lekki, where are their families, relatives or colleagues because it is impossible that all of them were at Lekki and shot.


What is still stopping government from extraditing the IPOB leader who told his followers to go burn down Lagos?

How long will it take for government to fish out those who created those fake creative's shared online?


Were there more youths who came from the South East to Lagos to infiltrate the protest?

Was Lekki incident used as distraction by IPOB or any other group so they could burn down Lagos?

Government must investigate and find answers to these questions.

Idiotic General want to confuse them with military terms. What's the difference between a Rifle and a Gun?

Just like me saying, Fat and Adipose tissue, no difference at all.

First u were not there, then u were there but u only went to share water and drinks (soldiers cannot shoot their brother said & sisters).

Then u only shot blanks in the air u did not shoot at the crowd. Then after CNN’s biggest 'This you?' of the year, now u carried carried blanks & live ammo!

Just stay in one place stop confusing urself thinking that u r confusing d thunder that will fire u all!

Mouth has changed like women's underwears. grin

Soon they will admit the protesters were killed but it was a "light killing".

Later they will admit that soldiers carried the bodies then say it was "to stabilise at our hospital by our experienced combat surgeons".

This tragicomedy is becoming very interesting and d Nigerian Army is really dancing naked in d open without any hope of salvaging herself. Just reflect for a few seconds if there were no live coverage or utilization of Social Media on d eve of this operation by now the FG and their killer Army would have maintained d narrative dat the men in uniform we saw with our Koro Koro eyes with military camo shooting were actually hoodlums or even ghost and that they were never there. Imagine same Army different variants of explanations, first we were not there, we were there but didn't shoot to we shot only in d air and then the bullets were blank bullets. Now at this stage the Army now says gun mean high caliber weapons of mass destruction and that what we v all along been calling guns are simply rifles. Chai Nigerian Army of d Zoo according to Nnamdi Kanu can sustain a seasonal movie of several episodes. I just wish CNN will remain on this matter and be unyielding like ASUU vs FG
I am beginning to think otherwise.people with the actual footage of what transpired need to start coming out.its a known fact that people died.

It shall not be well with this present administration. I think they are already feeling the heat. The world is closing up on them, imagine that stinking mouth information minister speaking through his anus threatening cnn. The blood of the innocent you killed will surely ask. Shameless people with no iota of shame. You shall all be disgraced at least.

Arrrrrrrh



I have a question if thier intention was actually not to kill why did they carry live ammunition?
If you are to say, they are to carry it, of which they suppose to. But considering the masses what possibility can you say they didn't shoot considering the big masses?

I just can't believe this news? The authentication is charade and false. In Nigeria saying the truth from big men is an abomination.

I think for safety purpose bro. Cuz as at then, Nigerian youths can do anything undo do to the highly level of frustration by the so called SARS

How would a military go out without live ammunition? What if they are attacked? Will they run back to their base for live bullet or what?

Come you be omugo o!!

Where were you when then said they didn't go with live ammunition? You supported them, that yes, they didn't. Now they say they did, you still support them that they should have.

It's either Nigeria and her authorities are alrdy fvking with ur brain or u r d1 doing it to yourself.

The clear narrative is that they are trying shamelessly to cover what's in the open. It's a national disgrace.
