      nope, I am completely disappointed in you. What do you mean by “not true please?” For a university student to write this comment, is a disgrace to our nation. You do not even realize that the soldiers do not have any right whatsoever to shoot at students at all, over any protest? Imagine you were one of those students being shot during that protest, will you make this kind of comment? Please, nope you need to read Cornelius Akubueze’s comment for enlightenment.

    Nigerian citizens should have the right to peacefully protest against incompetence with the risk of being harmed by those who are supposed to be protecting them. The Nigerian armed forces; army, police, airforce, navy, sss etc. all need to be re-oriented and educated on principles of human rights. They also need to be properly trained on how to handle and use guns and ammunition non of which is invented, manufactured or designed in that failed country but imported and routinely used against our own citizens. The entire armed forces needs to be reformed and as a standard, any enlisting candidate has to have a minumum of Bachalors degree. The animals amongst the forces need to be weeded out because they are a disgrace to humanity.
