ILoveDemMANNA:
Here comes one of the few OBJECTIVE POST ON THIS THREAD

Even if it was just one (1) youth that was killed
It is a very BIG issue for some of us with brains and souls,
If it was 7 youths as it was reported by the genuine protesters at Lekki, it is still so sad,
and if it was 78 or 100 youths as it was circulated all over social media,
We deserve to know the whole truth as a nation.
So we can know how to table our matter to the international community.
We want to know what is true and what are lies.
We dont want to accept any lies from the Army and at the same time, We don't need some people (celebrities et al) fueling fake news on this heated country now.
We are not fighting against Nigeria,
We are fighting for Nigeria.
#IStandWithTheTruth
Some Nigerians are waiting for what is the truth.
#IStandWithAPeacefulProtest.
#AGoodCountryIsAllNigerianYouthsWant
Again,
We are not fighting against Nigeria,
We are fighting for Nigeria.


Conscience is an open wound. Only the truth can heal it.


The Good people of Nigeria deserve to know the WHOLE TRUTH of this Lekki issue now.
Heads must roll!

Up till now, many Good Nigerian citizens with an open mind don't know what to believe.........still!

Sincerely, please how does the answer to this your question stop friends or colleagues or neighbours of people allegedly killed in Lekki to speak up sir.

So far, there are evidence of audio of IPOB leader instructing and commanding his IPOB members to burn down Lagos and so it was. At first I thought it was because of the Lekki incident but so far it is turning false.

So did IPOB use the Lekki incident as a distraction to burn down Lagos as he told his followers.

Why is it taking so long to extradite him to Lagos as we are investigating the incident?



Those mayhem were caused by government sponsored thugs
yes there are enormous proofs

Everybody knows that except northerners

You mean it's ipob that was gathering thugs inside brt buses and police trunks??

It was ipob that gave Hausa 500 to disrupt protest and burn protesters cars in Abuja??
It was ipob convening thugs inside SUV?

There are proofs to all these

We are on Lekki toll gate issue and the viral audio of IPOB specifically charged his members to burn down Lagos.

The Nigeria army, Lagos State government and the federal government should just own up and ask for forgiveness so that the families of the victims ( dead and injured) can heal and move on


Adequate compensations too should be paid by both Lagos State govt & federal government
Next time they should only carry live ammo for the miscreants, fire for fire.

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.

IPOB is not Igbo and it is clear that some of those Igbos affected deserve justice too.

What IPOB did must be investigated and their members prosecuted if found culpable.

No Igbo born and raised in Lagos will ever burn Lagos.

It is becoming clear that some suspected IPOB members infliterated the protest and their presence may have a connection with the IPOB leader instruction to his members to burn down Lagos and the eventual carnauge.


I never confuse Igbos for IPOB . In fact, it is insulting to do so after seeing how the cloth worn by The former Deputy Senate President was torn and he was beaten and disgraced in Germany by IPOB members.


I perfectly understand your view . I am in support of justice . My friends lost their shops during this crisis ...Right now they are depress ....my only worry is that must Nigerians see ipob as every igbo man ....despite being tagged a terrorist group ...is like calling every Hausa man boko Haram.......Igbos are very industrious people . After a boy finish serving his master , he will be settled only to find his shop looted ...Majority of igbos who own investment in Lagos came from igbo land ....they were not born in Lagos ...there is no difference btw igbo in the east and those in Lagos ...Anyone that decided to join a destructive group is on his own ...

See how your dirty mouth stinks. I wonder who paid you to be doing this. As yourself these questions before you come back on nairaland to speak thrash.

1-Why did the military take the bodies of those killed away in their vans in the first place?

2-Why is the military preventing the public from inspecting their morgues?

3-The vehicles taken to lekki toll gate by the military as seen on the cctv footage were more than 10. For what purpose when we're not in war?

4-Eyewitness said the same military packed the bodies in those vans and took them away. Did you also read about it?

5-Are you aware the foreign journalists who wouldn't compromise the truth irrespective of monetary gift were also covering the Endsars events from day one? Those who exposed the Nigerian government weren't the eyewitness but BBC, Aljazeera ,CNN and other international newsmedia who were also there on the 20th of October.

Sanwoolu managed to confirm that at least , 2 people died at lekki toll gate shooting after refuting the claim earlier , true or false?

Have you heard about this news today? Read the below. The family members whose children were missing after the invasion of Endsars protesters at lekki are already visiting lagos hospitals to look for the bodies of their missing
members...Read..

Typical Nigerian things.
Plus and minus at the same time.
Blank bullet and live bullet
We shot up to the sky. We shot at people.
We were at tollgate, we were not at tollgate.

D only question I'll ask u is. What are the military doing there in the first place? Cos in other countries they have riot police. U can't see army or d marines inside d city to settle cases

If only you had the opportunity to live in the West, you would have known that it is an aberration for soldiers to load themselves with live bullets to go to a peaceful demonstration. But you have been brutalized by Nigerian leaders so your Brain is warped. We are not at war at Lekki where soldiers need live bullets.

God forgive you for defending evil for whatever reason

Look, let's all be sincere, the Nigeria government or army never cared about any rule of engagement, nor the manner of which the soldiers were to handle the protesters and we all know they used live bullets or government isn't that organised to think of using blank bullets. I am sure [they] just handpicked a bunch of soldiers, told them to load themselves up at the armory, and directed them to quell the protesters using any means necessary and left them at their discretion. No be Nigerian army and government they are to lazy chopping money to think strategically and logically. It's the same reason even if you were well equipped for boko haram you would still fail!
