    It has really been a torrid period for the country Nigeria, with the whole country space now full of uprisings.

    We have listed below a summary of what is happening in the country. The country is currently at its boiling point, and all we can hope for is peace.

    The Massacre of Souls

    On Tuesday 20th of October 2020 – The Nigerian military attacked peaceful protesters, killing scores and injuring a lot of people. The attack was carefully planned as CCTV cameras were disconnected earlier in the day, lights were switched-off minutes before the attack. The Nigerian military came with war-like machine guns and sporadically shot at the protesters.

    Police Rampage

    Nigerian Police Force came out in full force and started killing both peaceful protesters and hoodlums. This comes after hoodlums had attacked and burnt some of their stations across the country. Lagos was like a live war-zone while Aba, Onitsha, Warri, Ibadan, Asaba, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Enugu and other southern part of Nigeria were also living thru the same situation.

    Abuja Thugs

    With a lot of evidence captured by onlookers. We saw how DSS and other government officials were using Police and Military vehicles to hire thugs/hoodlums and set them against the peaceful protesters. Almost 15 cars belonging to the peaceful protesters were set ablaze, with a lot of protesters nursing different injuries.

    Benin Prison Break

    Hoodlums in their massive numbers attacked Edo state prison, freeing all prisoners. The governor of Edo state Godwin Obaseki had issued a press release giving all escapees 48 hours to return to prison. We all know how this will end.

    Oba of Lagos Palace

    The palace of the Oba of Lagos was ransacked by hoodlums, unfortunately the Oba had escaped thru help from the military. Online footage shows hoodlums running away with the king’s staff while the whole palace had been occupied by children from the area. Children were seen swimming in the palace’s pool.

    Diaspora Movement

    One element that has really supported this #EndSars protest has been the Nigerians in diaspora with Nigerians all over the world going to the streets to support the movement. This includes Nigerians in Canada, UK, Europe, Africa, America. Most notable ones are the ones in London, Toronto, Atlanta, Texas, Manitoba, Pretoria, Capetown, New York and Vienna.

    Tribal War Looming

    The Fulanis/Hausas based in the outskirt of Lagos state, Iju-Ishaga/Fagba are currently in a tug of war with the Yorubas in that area. Online footage shows houses burnt to ashes, herders truck looting, etc. This is looming and if it is not contained, it could lead to a major uprising as the country is already at a boiling point.

    Covid-19 Hidden Treasure

    This has been the main focal point of the day as hoodlums were able to discover hidden warehouse in the eastern part of Lagos, Masa Masa, Festac, Amuwo Odofin. The warehouse was full of palliatives meant for the people during the Covid-19 lock-down. Looting began at the warehouse and as at 14:00 Naija time, it was noted that the warehouse is now half-full. People are hungry and angry at the government.

    They cannot stop a angry and hungry civilians who have been asking and begging the Nigeria government to give them good governance for 60 years. There is no way Nigeria can move forward if corruption and poverty are not tackled with immediate effect. Nigerians can no longer endure the suffering that has been brought to them by people in power for another 60years. NIGERIA NEEDS RESTRUCTURING.

    Restructuring is an understatement, with a dead president and the cabal at the driving sit. Nigeria should just split and everyone can go their ways.

    The country is really in an extremely serious situation. Dead body all over the street, people are crying and the president has just spoken without any remorse. It’s really a terrible state of things.

    I remember how sad and despondent I was when he won the first election and how much  I tried to convince people around me not to vote for him and my only reason is that he doesn’t have the mental capacity to run the country but it even turned out to be more than that he is a devil advocate.

    Anyways, I love the fact that we the youth sent out some messages to ASO ROCK and to the world.

    I think the president is dead a long time ago, the cabal rules Nigeria. This is why Tinubu can launch his presidential campaign 1 year into the new term. Its another reason we will never have a live stream of the president. The cabal controls everything and are majorly northerners. We will only be see Osibanjo.
