It was the turn of the unexpected today in the Nigerian polity, and shortly after the murder of a northern critic of Alli Monguno, the incumbent Adviser on security to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The touching news of Gulak’s death had hardly gone to rest when the news of another attack came in.
It tallies with Omoyele Sowore, the voice of a generation of frustrated Nigerians, clamouring a revolutionary take over from the incumbent government of Muhammadu Buhari.
A few Nigerians have been caught unawares by the unexpected news of his attack.
He was said to have been shot on the thigh by a female police, who was trying to prevent a crowd of protesters from entering the Unity Fountain in Abuja.
Sowore reacted to the shocking news by communicating via his Twitter page around 10:21 (am) this morning.
He confirmed his being shot by one DSP Hyhelhira Atine Daniel, without cause.
Nobody could have believed a peaceful protest, as enshrined in the 1999 constitution of Nigeria (as amended) can be capable of making an unconstitutional, unpatriotic and criminal act that should warrant the trigger.
Not even a statement too has emanated from the Nigerian Police Force as at the time of compiling this story.
But privileged information has revealed that the victim is currently being treated at an undisclosed location.
