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.

Fulani terrorist trying to divert attention to IPOB. Only fools will take your bait. IPOB has never been a threat to any southerner because no southerner is a threat to us. We've clearly identified those who have been threatening southerners collectively and we'll remain focussed on bringing them down.
Today, other naive southerners are confirming what we've been saying about your terrorist Nigerian Army who enjoy killing peaceful protesters and are so shameless to still deny it. Unlike before, technology today has ensured that nothing is hidden. Presently the people are seeing their desperation at covering their crimes and resolve in sustaining their evil suppression of the southerners. Smart southern youths are preparing to counter ALL their devices. Freedom is attainable and will be attained. The oppressor will never win.

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.
pls ask him in Nigeria context how many people now soldier have fake bullet and if there is life fire of arm won't it lead to stamped with the crowd at lekki then and won't their be death from the stamped and rush for safety





this a joke from the general
tell him to lean how to lie from Lai Muhammad
to be a good layer




please let me catch news if Trump done. concede

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

Compensation my left ass. Heads must roll for this!

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.

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?


What happened to use of rubber bullets and blank ammunition just as it's done in other saner climes. Or do u think rubber bullets can't paralyze a mob crowd?? What about the use of hot water grenades, stun grenades and tear gas?? These have all been found very potent against any supposed mob but yet not lethal. But your army went with live ammunition and u are defending them.

Don't worry soon the evil u cover and defend today will catch up with your family members and you will live so long to bear the pains alone as u watch each of your family members fall prey to the evil in this nation. Rubbish!!

they actually taught it will pass away like it normally does in the pass where they would just lie and nigerians will buzz for a while and history will be wiped off.. This time around, things are different and they are extremely desperate because what they taught would have been long forgotten is getting fresher everyday and the idiot in power can't even focus on other things anymore.. They are extremely confused and desperate at the moment.

The Australian military is in the process of charging highly trained Special Forces soldiers engaged ON OPERATIONS against Taliban insurgents with "war crimes" for the killings of 39 people who posed NO THREAT to the soldiers. The panel of inquiry determined that there were failures of command and control at the team, unit and command levels and the killings were a part of "blooding" operators with "kills".
In one incident, witnessed by an attached US marine, someone taken prisoner was topped because there was no more room in the helicopter to take them back to be interrogated at the main base.

Compare and contrast this show of shame at the #endsars judicial enquiry in Lagos. The protesters posed NO THREAT and yet we've been fed a catalogue of lies from who authorised the deployment of soldiers to whether the soldiers were even present to whether the soldiers used live rounds or blanks to the number and extent of casualties to who/where has custody of the victims to social status of the bodies held by LASG. I emphasize that Lekki was not Helmand Province, an active battle space.

Also recall that in the US, the Defense Secretary REFUSED a presidential request to DEPLOY the military onto the streets of US cities being menaced with random looting under the guise of protests.

Australia and the US ; Nations of laws.
Nigeria ; a nation of outlaws masquerading under "constituted authority".

Lekki toll gate no be protest ground, did government give them permission to protest in a trade zone were money is collected? Criminals, is Lekki toll gate the only place in Lagos State to protest?
You call peaceful protesters asking for the betterment of the police force and the country at large criminals? How has the money collected over the years been used? It was a Nationwide protestest not just Lagos state, and lekki toll was one of the various places.

A vast majority of the youths don't have sense, one of the reasons for high unemployment rate....you're the only sensible person with a sensible comment so far

With their comments you will realised majority of the so called youth are dumbed. No wonder they are easy to manipulate when they can't ask a valid question

The criminals that burnt the toll gate, & the palms shopping mall are peaceful protester? Next time no blanks, shoot to maim.

Those were hoodlums and thugs hired by the state and political big wigs to destabilise the #EndSARS protesters and their movement.

Unfortunately, things got out of hand as their sponsors could not control them anymore, and they ran amok, looting and burning different places they could find!

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.

What is illegal? The protest? Have you read the constitution? Your own president also led demonstrations and protests when he was campaigning for presidency, under GEJ. Was he fired upon by soldiers?
