1. “Bright” is not bright at all.

My People, WALK WITH ME.
2. A Police PPRO who is obviously not “bright” at all, bullied a private citizen, & APC e-bandits clapped for him. If u don’t retire the APC next year, they’ll not only ban Twitter permanently, they’ll switch off the internet & send the army, the police & Agbado thugs to kill you
3. Political assassinations will resume. I repeat, #EndSARS is a marathon, not a sprint, #5for5 a mirage. With the APC in the saddle next year, you will lose the battle, & lose the war as well. This is no joke, I am not kidding you right now. There is fire on the mountain.

1. Like many too numerous to mention, David Hundeyin & DJ Switch, abandoned their whole life, businesses & livelihoods. They abandoned their friends & families, & all they held dear, bcos Tinubu & Sanwolu invited the military. They are on Exile, not by choice. IT’S A SAD STORY.💔
2. To many of us, #EndSARS is a scar that won’t go away, a horror we’ve been compelled to live with, forever. But one Small Alhaji (an APC politician) wants us to forgive Tinubu? Forgive him for what? What is there to forgive? Has he even admitted his guilt? What’s going on?
3. What are we missing? Has Tinubu admitted people died? Who switched off the lights? The denials, lack of empathy & emotional blackmail the BMC unleashed on us, the brown envelop journalists they activated to gaslight us, they were just too much. Many of us went into hiding.

On the 21st of October I asked these questions in my tweet below. I was convinced that it was impossible for the Nigeria Military who had conducted themselves with all sense of responsibility since the protests began; to turn around and behave like wild
Packs of hyenas. I suspected a fifth column. The @HQNigerianArmy is not telling the truth about Lekki and I suspect why. National Security and classified information. The truth is @jidesanwoolu and the @HQNigerianArmy know exactly what they were/are dealing with. It is not pretty
The road to Lekki started in Ughelli where the man in the picture was arrested by Operation Delta Safe. The entire scene was like something from Nollywood. The guy and others drove a Lexus SUV unmarked, unlicenced. They took off when they saw the police vehicle. The police gave

The core purpose of #SarsMustGoNow, #SARSMUSTENDNOW protests rocking Nigeria was for #EndPoliceBrutality.

If @PoliceNG's illegal roadblocks/checkpoints of extortion continue across major highways & inner-city roads, this #MassMovement FAILED. ImageImageImageImage
2/ I, insist that @PoliceNG roadblocks/checkpoints are only designed to extort ordinary Nigerians of their hard-earned monies. These illegal extortion points don't contain crime.

Nigeria is about the only place, the world over, with such crude model of policing. #ShutItAllDown. ImageImageImageImage
3/ Int’l Society for Civil Liberties & Rule of
Law, '19 Report says Nigerians @ gunpoints paid over N306b at an estimated 600 military & 6,300 @PoliceNG roadblocks across SS & SE (August 2015-Oct. 2019).

This brazen @PoliceNG, @HQNigerianArmy corruption only happens in Nigeria. ImageImageImageImage

Let me tell you this for free. The Govt bent over backwards and approved all the demands including the #5for5. The President even gave the Presidential order as demanded. As we speak they are constituting an independent panel to investigate these crimes in the next 5days.
There is nothing I have ever tweeted that I won’t say the same way before God and Man. I am not doing anyone a favor but contributing my little quota for future generation’s sakes.
It was a long one but the demand for the immediate release of all that may have been arrested and some even charged with murder should be released unconditionally. The IGP and the panel agreed to all the terms as presented and will show this in their action.

Today the IG of Police & @NhrcNigeria convened a stakeholders’ forum to discuss & agree on implementation of recommendations of the Presidential Panel earlier established on Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). (Panel concluded work before SARS dissolution hence the name)

For me the most interesting highlights here include the following:

1. A formal acknowledgment of receipt of the #5for5 agenda of the End SARS movement (Item 1.64).
2. An acknowledgment of the need for “psychological evaluation, training and retraining of disbanded SARS officials prior to re-deployment.” (Item 6)

Distinguished, please note that the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act passed by the US Congress in 2016 allows the US Government to sanction foreign Government officials implicated in human rights abuses anywhere in the world. #5for5 #FreeLekkiRoad 🙏🏽
We mustn’t endanger the lives of others with our push for assurances on the already given orders that scrapped the tactical squads as demanded as a main objective of the movement. Fellow citizens must not suffer more. Let’s open the roads and keep the peace.
We have been locked down in meetings since with the IG of @PoliceNG @MinofPoliceNG credible CSOs and other critical Govt bodies as hosted by the @NhrcNigeria. This has never happened before, as made possible by our collective responsibility as citizens.
