Nigerians on twitter are reacting over the alleged shooting of popular activist, Omoyele Sowore.
Sowore, the convener of Revolution Now was reportedly shot by the police in Abuja on Monday.
See reactions below:
How Sowore always looks like a bandit and ‘known’ gunman to the Nigerian government is baffling;
He mobilizes ordinary people,they deploy armed police .
He comes with mic,they come with Black Marias,
He comes with placards ,they come with guns.
He comes in peace,they shoot.

If you ever doubted the vile impunity of the Nigerian state and its slave plantation police force, fasten your seatbelt, a female officer just shot Sowore whilst he was peacefully protesting being locked out of Unity Fountain..🤨

Freedom is not given. Freedom is taken. The Sowore everyone knows as a peaceful protester still got shot. Even Martin Luther king got killed despite being peaceful with his protests.
If you must be free. You must be radical like Nnamdi kanu & Sunday igboho.

Dear Sowore you cant save Nigeria, Nigeria cant be saved, nobody can.
Nigeria will kill you and nothing will happen
Infact it's more honorable dying to kill Nigeria than dying to save her.
It's time for Mr Sowore should add his voice to the disintegration of Nigeria.
