#Nigeria’s military used a speech by Donald Trump to justify shooting at protesters in October. We investigated what happened and uncovered that an elite battalion fired machine guns into a crowd of unarmed marchers. nyti.ms/2GwdKAW
The military @HQNigerianArmy made several questionable claims:

1. The marchers blocked traffic.
2. The marchers attacked a military checkpoint with weapons and rocks.
3. Only 3 people were killed.
We reviewed hundreds of videos and pictures, went to the crime scene in #Abuja, interviewed survivors and talked to the military. Here’s how we did it - and what we found out.

We believe #Abuja should have a modern #football club for everyone & we ’re making it happen with @AbujaMetroFC. This series of tweets highlights our 3-year start-up plan. #AbujaMetroFC @youriplawyer_ @dejigbenro @fchiejine @Suraj35766 @UucheGE @Donfiazo @ELEGBETE1
Our goal is to establish a modern football club that the entire Abuja Metropolis can embrace. Our vision is for #AbujaMetroFC to become a model professional football club and grow to compete at the highest level of association football.
With the tested & trusted #CommunityOwnership model. Anyone can become a co-owner of #AbujaMetroFC. We will not need money bags to start & grow our own football club, just a group of people making token contributions, which gives them a % of the ownership of the club.

President Obasanjo once called maintaining Nigeria Airways (NAL) irresponsible. Six years later, one of his successors, despite a petition from former NAL employees appealing for ₦45 billion in severance pay, is shopping the world for an investor for a proposed national carrier.
Between a ferocious fight over revenue sharing, and ignoring the obvious on Boko Haram, bad ideas seem to die slowly, such that it has almost obscured the recognition Nigeria’s music industry got from the world’s largest music label.
The latest #BokoHaram attacks don't suggest a resurgence of the group so much as they demonstrate its resilience, capacity for strategic hibernation and stealth.

They also indicate that the financing with which it procures weapons and its recruitment remain largely uninhibited.
