A Nigerian soldier fighting Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast has lamented the gruesome killings of peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on Tuesday evening.
The soldier said he can’t be combating Boko Haram insurgency while the government is killing innocent citizens who are only fighting for their rights.
He also added that in as much as he’s a soldier currently serving the country, he can’t support bad acts of the government.
He said he’s in support of what the youths are doing i.e the peaceful #EndSARS protest.
