Goodluck Jonathan’s Legacy: Police Men Kill Three In Lagos, Two in Kano

Lagos police beating Ademola Aderinto before eventually shooting and killing him in Ogba Lagos
By Sahararareporters, New York

President Goodluck Jonathan’s order to the security services to crack down on the widespread civil disobedience has led to the extra-judicial killing of three peaceful protesters at the Pen Cinema area of Agege, Lagos, allegedly by one CSP Segun Olubunmi, the DPO of Pen Cinema police station driving a vehicle with registration number RS 101 LA. The police shot and killed Ademola Aderinlo after brutally torturing him on the street.

In Kano, the police also killed two other peaceful protesters today at the protest rallies there.   Many injuries have also been reported. 

Helicopters gunships were seen hovering over the Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, where over 150,000 gathered at the venue of the Save Nigeria Rally. All the protest rallies organised by the NLC and TUC terminated at the Gani Fawehinmi Park.

Currently, more than five people have lost their lives today to the brutality and constitutional rights violation of Mr. Jonathan’s security forces.

Reports of the killings infuriated the protesters in Lagos who defiantly began to curse Mr. Jonathan and to demand his resignation as the President of Nigeria.  

Mr. Jonathan came to office only seven months ago, claiming to have obtained over 70% of the votes in most of Nigeria.

Only Way to build New Nigeria

Nigerians must charge and prosecute President Johnathan for murder. Those Nigerians killed by his police during Fuel Subsidy protest.

Advise to Mr. President Goodluck Jonathan

I know u're a God fearing man, pls don't allow ur cabinet to mislead u by giving u a wrong advise.
seek wisdom from God Almighty to be able to deal with this present situation. your intentions for the Nigerian people are good but not understand because of the harsh-ship. what I will want you to do is first and foremost postpone the fuel subsidy then set an enlightenment program, workshop/seminars where you tell the masses of the great benefit that we all stand to gain in the future and then you now start to increase the fuel bit by bit i.e 65 to 80, 80 to 100, 100 to 120 and finally 120 to 140 you will see that with the help of enlightenment, there will be no much controversy instead from 65 to 138 that is why all these troubled. I am feeling the pitch too I would lie you.

WHICH DAY?

Which day,what day, when? will we put a stop to this madness?this isnt civil society nor governance. the only way to end our plight is to follow the example of others.
however who wants to die?certainly not the majority of the population.
we dey talk a good fight but very few of us are prepared to put our lives on the line in order to take the next step.lets face the truth. LETS FACE THE TRUTH,ITS DO OR DIE. why have some taken up arms?coz they are not cowards.
we kill over goats and chickens why not freedom.
ask yourselves,the day will come.
S.S.S. DON COME 4 EN BRIBE AGAIN.NA WA O

Pms increase.

I sincerely believe president Jonathan has been wrongiy advised by his economic team led by Ngozi. If president Obasanjo could discard Ngozi susgestion during his tenure and was able to rule successfully, i will advice president Jonathan to reverse back to old price of pms and now come to round table talk with NLC AND TUC.

Awesome. I never knew we

Awesome. I never knew we still had people who follow scriptures to understand facts about te bible. A lot of christisan believe that will fight thier every battle. Nations who felt uppressed had to rise up against such oppression/oppressor and today we see the change they enjoy eg. South Africa, Ghana just to mention a few. This is the right time for change and no one who calls himself a Nigerian should hold back until we see the change.

lol

@ammang and jbright, only the truth will set 9ja free not lies

U must be from the moon to think that the ongoing protest has united the country.Before the fuel importers led protest, the SS trusted the SW so much I never dreamt Tinubu for his own selfish interest, will break that accord.. The pact which took GEJ a lot of sweat to achieve is gone. It has evaporated. You have now given room to the SS, to back the assertion by the SE, that we shld never trust the SW. @AMMANG, go through the history books. Start from 1914 and see if you will discover any where in the records which shows that revenue from groundnut, was ever used to assist Shell in her oil exploration activities in the ND. The South West had Cocoa, Eastern region palm oil-the North the socalled invisible groundnut. Money was NEVER sourced from any of the old regions to finance oil exploration. Rather it was revenue from Cocoa, which was used to settle the salaries of civil servants in the North. Money for oil exploration, came from the British overseas development fund-to shell-

Haba! are you God? Take care

Haba! are you God? Take care not to curse.

From what I gather, two (Big

From what I gather, two (Big Joe) busloads of Edo people were returning home from the north, they were intercepted and the buses set ablaze. I am not justifying anything here but how much do you think they can continue to take? All killings on all sides should stop! Whether Hausa or Edo, we are all Nigerians and should be our brothers' and sisters' keepers.

"If christian was killed by boko haram non of us is feeling good and for every 20 person killed by Boko haram 19 are muslim only 1 is a southerner despite that we are not happy here in the Muslim or Islamic north"

I do not think that this statement you have made is correct. Do you have facts and figures?

Shameful Police

Among all d police force in d world Nig has d most useless & corrupt of all.most of u re not well paid,ur children lack good education while ur masters in higer ranks all ve their children in abroad instead to join hands with these few Nigerians who re willin to fight 4 d rights of all Nigerians u discourage them by takin their lives,what a shame.

GOD WILL NOT FIGHT YOUR BATTLE

TO MY FELLOW NIGERIANS, I BELIEVE IN GOD WITH ALL MY HEART. BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS, GOD IS NOT A FREEDOM FIGHTER, GOD DOES NOT ENGAGE IN THE LIBERATION OF AN OPPRESSED PEOPLE, GOD DOES NOT DO AND HAS NEVER DONE POLITICS, GOD WILL NOT DELIVER YOU FROM THE HANDS OF VENAL POLITICIANS WHO ARE GETTING FATTER AS I WRITE, JESUS CHRIST SEPARATED CHURCH AND STATE. GOD'S CHOSEN NATION ON EARTH, ISREAL FOUGHT AND CONTINUES TO FIGHT FOR ITS SECURITY AND FREEDOM. THEY HAVE NOT WAITED FOR GOD TO PUNISH THEIR OPPRESSORS. 'GOD WILL NOT FIGHT YOUR POLITICAL BATTLES', THAT IS FOR YOU! IF YOUR PASTOR TELLS YOU TO WAIT FOR SALVATION FROM GOD WHILE HE STUFFS HIS POCKETS WITH YOUR CASH, HE IS OF THE DEVIL. ONLY YOU CAN DELIVER YOURSELF. HE THAT IS UNWILLING TO DIE FOR FREEDOM DESERVES TO DIE IN BONDAGE.

so sad to know that this is

so sad to know that this is happening in Nigeria,while the so called Nigeria President is busy talking about fuel subsidy bull shit when he should have dealt with the most important issues first. I read his speech on Sahara report, OMG who is this man's speech writer,they are all dumb fooooolllllllllllllllllss who only know how to write about feeding his already over feed illiterate wife and fat kids.That speech was dull,senseless,even a secondary school lever can write better,is this the kind of president people want to look up to?
Johnathan Goodluck you call him,here in UnitedKingdom,we see him as badluck,he has nothing to offer,he is an empty vessel,so he has to leave,let him take a post in his village and keep his wide,unwashed tooth to shut. BULLSHIT
oh NOOOOOOOOOOOO,I dont know,I am so so sad,how could they kill,injure peaceful protesters,where is our freedom of speech,our right to live.................,

Re: Boko's Killings Nko?

Please my fellow citizens, every reasonable & peace loving Nigerian is not happy about all the tagged activities of Boko Haram. And believe me if we should all continue to wag an accusing finger on particular segment or person, rather than finding solutions am damn sure it won't lead us to a better nation. I understands how you all feel but believe me coming together as one entity to fight this subsidy issue, may lead us to jointly fighting who ever is behind the so called Boko Haram. As for me as an individual I DON'T believe that Boko Haram exist rather than opportunist whom are covering their faces as BH just to archive their fetish goals.and part of it, is what you & every other person is holding in mind as grudges against one another, believing of all the chaos that makes people flee from one region to the other...etc. May God keep protecting us as a nation, & reveal all those that are behind the evil things happening in our dear nation. Ameen.

@deri&co, Can you all see the good?

Can you all see the good that has come out of this fuel subsidy removal? It has unified us the 'masses' of this great nation. The rogues have used our head over the years and caused soooo much disaffection amongst us, diverting our attention as they loot our treasuries. I thank God for this one mistake they have made(removal of fuel subsidy) because it has opened our eyes to see our common enemies! Let us remain united![courtesy:GODIYA MAKAMA'S wall on facebook]

Re-una oil

Deri,you most be stupid for saying the oil is yours.where does the money used to exploit the oil come from?before the discovery of oil what contribution did your people give to the development of this country.the money used was from our hard earning from gradnut and cotton.that means we are not lazy like you and people who solely depend on what is discovered with other people sweat and claim to be yours.lazy and jobless people shame on you

It is obvious Ifeanyi or

It is obvious Ifeanyi or whoever he claims to be is a government contractor.
In a world where people do not discuss power,good roads,water supply,health care and so on Ifeanyi is counting it as achievement that GEJ in the last two years has ensured we dont have fuel scarcity in a country that is blessed with the highest grade of crude oil in the world.
Should Nigeria be importing fuel in the first place ?

I really marvel at the degree

I really marvel at the degree of bigotry in many of us. The on-going civil disobedience offers a good foundation for the very unity we need to move this country forward. It is unfortunate that bigots like you abound to promote perpetual conflict using religion, tribe, or regional divides. In what way are you different from the dreaded Boko Haram? Birds of same feather!

Edo people in the north ask

Edo people in the north ask ur brothers in Benin city why are they killing the Hausas residing in their midst? Is't fare? Adams Oshimole should come out openly and tell us why our brothers were by your people FG should tell us why no condemnation of this act by presidency or the edo elders?... If christian was killed by boko haram non of us is feeling good and for every 20 person killed by Boko haram 19 are muslim only 1 is a southerner despite that we are not happy here in the Muslim or Islamic north as media people calling us for killing innocent sole of person of any faith Edos are many in our midst so pls come out and condemned this animalistic act of ur brothers who doesnt know anything but killing of innocent business hausa people before you provoked the hausa hosting your brothers

@ DANI - Shallow Analysis

Three people killed, the DPO got dismissed.......end of case in your view right? This is only a symptom of how shallow we have become in our analysis of right and wrong in this country. Our Governors/ President steal and kill, but once they throw us some platitudes (or egunge) like mass transit buses, we forgive and forget, and move on.....Instead of asking the deeper questions, and holding them fully accountable to doing right by us,...and stopping cuorruption and extra judicial killings.....So the carnage continues. Should the DPO's dismissal be enough.? Why is he not facing any charges of manslaughter, or murder? Why is the police department not also accountable to the parents /wives / husbands who have lost a loved one? WHEN ARE WE GOING TO START ASKING MORE OF OUR LEADERS!!!!! The problem of Nigeria is US.....because we have allowed ourselves become shallow and spineless........time to change is now "OCCUPY NIGEIRA!''
