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.

Soon they will say they shot live rounds but only targeted their legs

Azzin....# then the youths will counter it with video evidence to show that they sat on the floor and sang the national anthem while they were being shot at.

Let the FG, Lagos State government and NA accept their wrong doing and reveal all the corpses of the shot victims, and compensate all the bereaved families.

Adequate compensations too should be paid by both Lagos State govt & federal government

Well sorry to inform you, your words have no legitimacy, if the Government deems them illegal, it is illegal irrespective of your sentiments, if you like go & report to the united nations in NY.

Even Lai Muhammed cannot debate this with me. You seem to have forgotten really quickly that we're ruled/governed according to a written constitution. Not a decree or an unwritten constitution.

Where in the constitution is it stated that the government can just wake up and dictate which statement is legal or illegal as the case may be without proper reference to the constitution?

When you have no name to protect, you have no shame.

When Olumide-Fusika asked Taiwo if soldiers who went to the toll gate carried guns, Taiwo said, “When you are talking of guns, you are talking about high-calibre guns. They were carrying rifles; not guns.”

Imagine. He was saying rifles are not guns. Then how was he sure that one or two of the many soldiers were not shooting live ammunitions into the crowd? Nigeria Army has no dignity.

How can this man .... without common sense... get such a position?... a position to be in charge of armed men? He said he did not know the facts.... that's why he made the statement that the army was not present at the Toll Gate... the man just watching him.... moments of silence.... can't believe what he is hearing... awaiting clarification... only for the clown to add no soldiers were sent there. Unbelievable. And we wonder why Boko Haram is still thriving... and be overrunning the military whenever and wherever they want to. Imagine this man in the ICC facing human rights violation..... what a shame it will be on Nigeria.

I thought I was the only one who is disgusted at his grand mediocrity. He was even saying rifles are not guns.
Secondly, how did he know that one or two soldiers out of seven trucks of soldiers present did not shoot live ammunitions into the crowd?

you can see that the army is already confessing little by little. army, come out and said you fired at the protesters.

if truly they were deployed because the protesters were disturbing the peace of the state, why lekki which was the headquarter of the protest and yet they were organised to the level they were cooking and sweeping the floor. not a single shot was fired and no infrasture was burnt.

army and buhari, your generation would not know peace

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.

If the protesters could kill policemen, break prison, burn police stations and cart away guns, how do you expect soldiers to go to Lekki without live ammunition? It is impossible, even you cannot try such risk. Until we learn to tell ourselves the truth we can never get there. Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.

Soldiers are human with family and friends. No one will take such risk.

Resign? You must be preparing to play early father Christmas? Please make yourself available to be shot next time, so you can create evidence, because all you have now is I hearsay, which is inadmissible in law.

So if the video is not admissible in law , Is it the one that your evil master will present that will be admissible in law.
So the one the military is changing the story line every now and then is admissible by law.

There is enough evidence already .
We know in Nigeria people buy justice to favour them so I am not surprised at all at your hearsay.
It's not today government and evil people like you have been doing this.
We know your type na .
How much did they pay you to be quoting me. Your evil plan and your paid master can not succeed .
Darkness and lies can never overcome light and truth no matter how hard you people try.
So the evidence that as shown by CNN and videos are not enough. You can hear yourself that you are evil.
Na you, your family, and your paid masters they will use for killing experience and more evidence before Christmas.

The blood of the people that died will continue to cry for vengeance on you and your paid masters.
I know people like you have sold their souls to the devil so you can easily justify whatever evil you and your paid masters are doing to the masses.
We are waiting for another story to be told .

I don't have time for you. I have got better things to do.
