Below are some of the reactions on Sowore’s post;
This is to tell you that many issues Nigeria is facing is caused by this govt and their forces tell me why must a police man shot live bullet on a peaceful protest. There is God oo
If you protest peacefully, they will use violence
How else should one express his opinion?
Shey make we come dey prostrate dey beg make dem build better infrastructure for us
Later they will start blaming Igboho and MNK for instigating violence
Clearly, The police officer was sent to kill Sowore. He must be arrested immediately without any delay. Any attempt to cover-up this assassination attempt will heat up the polity.
Please, please, please, whether you agree with Sowore or not does *NOT* matter…people have a right to *peaceful* protests in any sane democracy…everyone should be angry about this totally shameful behaviour by same police force that can’t fight bandits.
This’s can’t be bullet wound although is wrong because we all have the right to protest. If the Police felt otherwise they can arrest, charge and prosecute him but not to harm him. Get well Soworw.
