( No, because unconfirmed report has it that, the military men involved in the shooting took some bodies with them) and with previous precedent of military and police actions against Nigerians, this act is common with the Nigerian Forces
Was the raid carried out by Nigeria Army?
(Yes but this was the few corrupt once which according to report are from another command not within the Lagos command).
Is the Nigeria Army against the protest?
(No they are not as seen in the video below, as well as chat history with an Army officer).
but because Nigeria is a democratic state, they are advising that protesters act within the law not to allow hoodlums hijack the protest. As seen in the chat history, and important note on several videos by military commandant. A win for rebranding Nigeria is a win for them too.
Note that, the last time army salary was increased was in 2007. Yes there was an increment some times last year, but has not been effected. Nigeria Army want better life too so they are in support of peaceful protest but can not join you because of their Uniform and oath of office as such they will never shoot peaceful protesters.
Are our traditional rulers supporting our actions?
( Yes they are in fact the whole word is happy that for once Nigeria youth woke up to fight for their right and as such they are in support of peaceful protesters. To the youth you are not alone in this, sure you understand why a lot of people are not coming out openly)
Is Nigeria leaders afraid of the youth
(Yes as seen with Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and former president of Nigeria, fleeing the country in the wake of the demonstrations and Riot) in fact military and police knows that the unity of the youth will cost collateral damage so they are afraid and in prayers it does not get to that.
Will it affect you if the burning and killing continue?
(Yes it will, even those of you in Diaspora. We all have relations back home direct or indirect so there are ways to fix Nigeria without breaking law and other. And for you at home be careful, (hunger go they o), life will be difficult that’s why we all have to be careful and use our head).
Can we achieve this rebranding we have started?
Yes watch out for what Nigerian youth must do to achieve rebranding of Nigeria without breaking the law.
As you share information ask your self is this true? or doctored? will it cost more life to be lost or save more life? am I focus? or I am distracted? yes violence might bring the change we desire but the lost can be collateral.
Bad governance and corruption
Lets give power to the people, and make service officer accountable. But we should be wise in our dealings, Nigeria is the only country we can call our own.
