To shoot at crowd of protesters has become the norm of the Buhari administration. It started from the shooting into the crowd when Igbos are protesting in the East and nowadays it has become normal to kill Shiites.
I will really want to know who ordered the police to kill Shiites today in Kano. Their offense was to protest and the annual Arbaeen trek, from their destination to Zaria. The excuse the police are using for shooting into the crowd is that they block the road.
I find the excuse problematic. You cannot just shoot at protesters because you are trigger happy. The Buhari administration seem to have no qualms about this. The presidency muteness on this killings shows incompetence and ignorance in handling problems. That the federal government have not talked to their police on handling protesting masses is scary. This is no longer democracy. Even harmless groups like #BringBackOurGirls have complained about this harassment that has become the culture of the APC led government.
I was horrified when I saw the picture of dead Shiite members lying down on the floor. No wonder the United States blocked the sales of arms from Brazil to the Nigeria government. They know the government uses the arms on their own people.
This is simply unacceptable.
