Was it not in this country that rising to take a strong stand that young women who went to school and were abducted deserved the justice of rescue by their @NGRPresident and @NigeriaGov , earned one attacks, falsehoods, impugning, arrest and detention? It’s their way. Just stand!
They lied to you that reason I, your fellow citizen was determined for #JusticeOfRescue to be given abducted children is “she wants to be minister”, “she’s looking for attention”, “she was hired as a consultant to embarrass xyz “, “ she is angry at xyz”.
You foolishly believed.
The total lack of cognitive ability or unwillingness to connect-the-dots and see through all the lies that the two administrations of the @NigeriaGov and their allies have hurled at your fellow citizens for daring to #SpeakUp for #ChibokGirls will remain a wonder to me. Na waa.

Members of the @EndSARSLegalAid were at the Magistrate court today to represent 90 defendants from the #EndSARS protests.
Court commenced sitting at 2:17pm
Defendants said they were arrested b/w 20-24th Oct by the @HQNigerianArmy and detained at Bonny camp for 4 days without food, water or medical care or access to family and lawyers. Many were arrested outside their homes or after curfew.
They were transferred to the police and many said family members are not even aware of their whereabouts. Below are Hyginus Overo and Jude John. They have no family members in Lagos.Please retweet so their family members will know.

Generation #Sorosoke - What Can Data Tell Us?

On May 29, 2020 Nigeria’s democracy turned 21, and millions of young Nigerians also turned 21. In fact, btw 1999 and today, ~83 million Nigerians have been born. Out of those 83 million, at least 72.5 million are alive and well
(factor in avg. 10% death rate). ~15 million are those I call #BornDemocrats. By 2023, that number increases to ~21million (born btw 1999-2005). These young Nigerians, who can now vote or carry pvc, have never been under military rule, unllike some of us. That’s why they bravely
remained at the toll in Lekki. They have no idea what the military is capable of. They don’t know or care about IBB or Abacha. While they know of June 12, MKO may not be their hero. Fela’s music may have influenced many of us at some point, for them it is Davido, Wizkid, etc

Was just thinking about the #EndsSARS #EndSWAT #EndPoliceBrutality #EndBadGovernmentinNIGERIA and a question seem to be coming up in my mind.

If the #SARSMustGo guys are now retrenched, what would be their lot in relation to living...In the bid of
In the bid of solving a problem we create another. Come to think of it most of the officers in #SARS have being living large on stolen money...in my vicinity they go about with their own PoS to extort their victims no need to follow you reach ATM
They have upgraded heavily...Now a lot of them live on over #500k a month...and we all know with this kind of lifestyle and affluence cum their qualification and all, there is virtually no job they can do to keep up with this level of lifestyle (income).

Finally summoned courage to share my SARS story: One day back in 2010, SARS picked me up in front of Luth while I was waiting for a cab.
I just graduated from Uni and it was a few days to induction(graduation). I came to LUTH to sort out my induction gown.
We lived off ogunlana drive back then. My dad called me that he wanted to come pick me up cos he was feeling a certain kind of way about my safety
and I was like “daddy luth to ogunlana is a stone throw, I’m a big girl now, let me take a cab .. see you soon, love you!” As soon as we hung up, my phone battery died.....
