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.

You are digressing
The shooting took place on the 20th
The burning took place on the 21st

Lets solve that of the 20th first because all I can see here is that you are a newly paid and energized zombie that is here to create confusion

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
Zombie burning, looting, & prison break is peaceful demonstration to you?

I don't know if our government have watched and studied how civilized countries handled crisis or protest...no live threatened arms is used. Why will the president and the chief of army staff send our soldiers to lekki? This question have not been answered.
I think something is not right...that action is enough to cause tension or anarchy. And bridge the trust and relationship between the civilians and our soldiers. I hope they understand what that action have caused innocent Nigerians were killed.

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.
after cnn revealed the bullet used that night they can't deny it, so they added they went with blank bullets too to counter grin

Buhari and Burutai will go to jail, they committed genocide at lekki toll gate, killed armless protesters that was endsars carnival, i dont understand why they shot at them, this youths were not troubling anyone, they made fun out of the whole stuff, i was planning to go there if i was in lagos, our director came to the protest ground, it could have been anyone that would have been shot there.
This issue should not be treated with kids gloves, a government responsibility is to protect her citizens and not murder them in cold blood like was done lekki toll gate.

Nit surprised The army sent a brigade Taiwo for a purpose, yorubas will lie and sell their birth right. I am yoruba and one of my major issues with my tribe is neglecting the fact that respect is earned not given. Culturally they are most unloyal, and can dance around the truth without shame. Las las they'd explain it away with some silly lame excuse quoting plenty proverbs, idioms and lessons why.

Real Shame in the Taiwo person

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?

U must be insane to say this... what sort of defense are you putting out for them? Do you have loved ones? So you wish to see them among the people killed by these live ammunition’s they carried ?

Damn I’m super pissed at some silly comments I see here in defense of the govt and the army

ITS OFFICIAL:




The Nigerian Army has been diagnosed to have contracted the virus disease called LYING VIRUS DISEASE (LVD-20). This was discovered at the Sociopolitical Panel Hospital, Lagos.



The said disease is contracted from a lying machine called Lai.


It is still unknown when the said disease would be cured as there are no effective vaccines at the moment.



Please, remember the Nigerian Army in your prayers!

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!

International community, I thought we had gotten our independent my guy.
Inferiority complex will always disturb our mindset
