Photos: Nigerians protest police brutality. Police fire tear gas at protesters in Abuja, Nigeria, on Tuesday, October It will be a cyber warfare exercise designed to identify, track and counter negative propaganda on social media. The Army says it is committed to the sustenance of peace and security in Nigeria and urges Nigerians for their support during the period of the exercise. Using the Nigeria armed force for scare tactics is so pathetic.
The youth are not laying ambush. The army have really lost its vision and direction. I begin to wonder if they are the police. Am ashamed of the army and happy I did not enrol when I wanted to. The army should mind their fight against boko-haram that is taking them over ten years with little success, and leave the protest for the police to handle.
If they or any of their family members have been dealt with by SARS or the police they would probably understand the reason for the protest. The flex their weak muscle only on harmless, armless and toothless civilians. Shame on them. If they are to stop cyber crime, then stop it online.
Why take to the streets? That is to show we have got non-computer age army. There is something called cyber space security. Go and learn and stop an online protest online. If it is offline, solve it offline. I rest my case. If you are not tired of what is happening, i am tired. My brother is also in the force. Am not scared to die because the life am leaving now is worst than death.
