    • NaijaSubway started the discussion The Day Crocodile Smiled At Nigerians - Lekki Toll Gate - The Massacre

      October 27, 2020 at 11:19 AM

      Exactly a week ago, the Lagos state government declared curfew in the state, giving citizens very limited time to find their way home, little did we know what was about to unfold.

      Peaceful protesters at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos had to stay behind at their location given the limited time to find their way home.

      Few minutes after the curfew had started roughly around 7:00PM, it was dark and the protesters were in their jubilant mood as always, there comes the Nigerian Military Soldiers from Bonny Camp, Victoria Island with all their tanks and ammunition in a war-like style, approached the location of the peaceful protesters without any prior warning but rather basing their arrival on the declared curfew.

      Prior to their arrival, CCTV cameras at the toll gate were unmounted, the power supply were cut-off. It was all dark, and the peaceful protesters were all in there numbers, singing the national anthem, waving the Nigerian flag, in a patriotic state of mind, they thought the soldiers will join them to uphold the unity of Nigeria, but instead, the massacre begun; they killed over 65 people and injured a lot, they opened up their armory and fired vehemently, footage shows how joyous they were in executing their orders.

      Agony, sorrows, pain, tears, blood all over the place. What has just happened ? Why the killings ? Who ordered It.

      DJ_Switch, a Nigerian female DJ who was at the location immediately went live on her instagram, pushing the horrible scene down to social media. This got the attention of Nigerians all over the world and Immediately, the Nigerian Defence HQ released a statement from their tweeter handle, condemning all images, tagging them as FAKE, the Lagos state governor will also deny that there were no presence of the Nigerian soldiers at the protest ground.

      Here comes the billion dollar question, who is lying, the dead bodies, the injured citizens, the defense HQ or the state governor ?

      Rage all over the world, with Nigerians in diaspora staging protests across the world, calling for all diplomatic missions and top political figure in the world to investigate the massacre. World top figures like Hilary Clinton, The Pope, Rhianna, Beyonce e.t.c all got involved asking for the Nigerian government to show accountability and stop denying her citizens their human rights.

      And so, the president of Nigeria General Muhammad Buhari was in mute mode, but pressure from international bodies and human rights organization had force him to give a recorded speech, this speech was indeed labeled EMPTY and lack empathy.

      A week later, with pressure from international press, the governor of Lagos state and the Military are now easing out gradually as they have now confirmed military presence at the protest ground with the governor confirming there were casualties.

      The billion dollar question still remains. WHO ORDERED THE MASSACRE OF PEACEFUL PROTESTERS.

    • NaijaSubway started the discussion EndSARS Protest - Summary So Far - The Uprising

      October 22, 2020 at 3:48 PM

      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.
