While this is very disturbing, one continues to wonder who else may have shot at peaceful protesters in a democratic country as Nigeria.
All we can do at it stands is to wait as investigations proceed, and hope also that Justice is served accordingly.
Peaceful protest is a core part of a democracy. And we must preserve this value through fishing out people responsible for the killing of peaceful protesters.
