I want to tell you a story, one that APC supporters and sponsors doesn’t want you to remember or hear about.
This thread is for APC online and offline supporters, bots, and tyranny defenders.
It’s the story of a young man; Bukhari Bello Jega (Bless his soul) #Thread
Like many of you today Bukhari was a strong Buhari supporter, a critic of the GEJ admin; we read his tweets, Buharists RT’ed, like you see happening now.
He wanted change, and believed the Buhari “saint hard-man” posturing will bring the change.
We warned, just like we do now.
He encouraged Buhari even after swearing in, and promoted the little he did.
BTW, Buhari ordered selling of two jets, but none has been sold till date. So he was misled too.

It never easy to estimate the depth or extent of damage done by military rule. It's corrosions never go away. It's like we're in a civic #StockholmSyndrome - folks who get trampled by military abuses & misadventure often have an infinitely elastic capacity to ask for more abuse
It's terribly unfortunate that ppl who claim to be "constitutional" lawyers will justify soldiers ransacking a newspaper house, abducting journalists & confiscating computers, none of that procured with a court order or search warrant - basic niceties of rule-constrained process
The constitutional guarantee of free speech allows for limitation but that can only be done "by law reasonably justifiable in a democracy". Soldiers are not law unto themselves & it's not reasonably justifiable in a democracy for soldiers to go abducting ppl or ransacking media

3. The true horror of what happened over those two days in Zaria is only now coming to light. Bodies were left littered in the streets and piled outside the mortuary. Some of the injured were burned alive.

The authorities have no excuses for using live bullet on law-abiding citizens.
These killings are already outrageous. It's killing me inside. Why are we keeping quiet?
