    The action of the military that day was uncalled for and without reason
    It was Carlos and wicked shooting at innocent protesters that were very very peaceful without arms

  2. Those old faces that are ruling us right from almost 40 years are the one that we are still parading up til moment, youths should stand up and send them back to their compulsory retirement.

  3. If we (youths) don’t stand up to our responsibility those old men won’t leave, they are just saying youths are the leaders of tomorrow by mouth not by working towards it. Lekki toll gate shooting is sad event.
