JemimaOsunde Just see the way CNN reports the news. Very direct without fear or favour MorenikeA_ bakersemporium MorenikeA_ SireTea Swagz2rover whats going on here

These holligans are playing with citizens brain😫😫 they will all see the wrath of God Abiy Ahmed PM of Ethiopia declard genocide over Tigray regional state please say Stop killing Tigrians Bunch of liers nobody is killed in lekki _SirWilliam_ Nigeria Army lost the prestige by allowing politicians to use them! You've been used and you'll face the wrath, the blood of the dead will never let u have peace!

_SirWilliam_ The narrative has not ended. Where did they keep the corpses? They should bring them out for the family to bury while the army as an organization hide themselves in permanent shame and resign... _SirWilliam_ General Taiwo is so unprofessional and illiterate. He is a disgrace to his family, generation and humanity. Still wearing that army uniform shows that he is a Cancer in human form. Who's their parents? Shame on them...

CNN thank you o. cnn go finish una 😂😂🤣 so daft, he should have maintained they only fired blanks, so poor at manipulating. Na you go still confess yourself. Pls wait o, I just read the news saying because of hoodlums they went with live ammunition as well as blanks, as there were real protesters. The question is so they were changing from blanks when real protesters were identified and live when hoodlums were identified

Bunch of killers You better be kidding liars We are getting there by the day... This soldier is so cute chaii LINUS! Those country like America and Europe are the one sponsoring our Nigeria politicians, they give them visa and give room for them to hide stolen money in their country and their children study in their country too, Nigeria is a failed country please banned them

the international rule never to use the Army to shoot at its own people seems to be more and more forgotten. It is however a dangerous cocktail and provocation to do so. Who ever gave this order must be made accountable and face justice. Or will the people be hunting soldiers? Arinze24 Shame on BBC and their cook up reportage. Happy Sunday Great Minds
