President of the Omega Fire Ministries , Apostle Johnson Suleiman has termed today (Tuesday) as ‘Black Tuesday’ over reports of shootings in parts of the country following the EndSARS protests.
He also pleaded with hospitals to attend to gunshot victims so as to preserve their lives.
“I warned in 2015 but was called names..20/10/20-BLACK TUESDAY…
“Hearing hospitals rejecting shot victims..please, saving human lives is uppermost..they cant produce reports from the same people who shot them..I understand the procedure for bullet wounds but no protocols now..everyone, take a minute to pray..let God preserve them.
“God will reply everyone that pulled a trigger today…down to their fourth generation..it wont go unattended to..,”he tweeted on Tuesday.
THE WHISTLER earlier reported that there was heavy shooting at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos following refusal by #EndSARS protesters to comply with the 24-hour curfew imposed by the Lagos State Government.
Meanwhile, President of the DayStar Christian Centre, Lagos, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, has urged the protesters to go home pending when the Lagos curfew would be lifted.
He also urged the Lagos State Government to prevail on the security personnel to stop shooting at protesters and allow them go home.
“Dear young citizen, it is time to activate the STOP button and to switch online. Please go home.
“We appeal to the government to restrain security forces from shooting at citizens protesting peacefully and to give them time to go to their homes. #ENDSARS,” he tweeted on Tuesday.

In view of recent escalation of violence in parts of the country, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has appealed for three things from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku took his Facebook page to express sadness over reports of killings resulting from alleged infiltration of the ongoing #EndSARS protests by hoodlums.
According to him, the youths who have been protesting against police brutality and ‘bad governance’, have acted responsibly.
He noted that the #EndSARS protesters were “not unreasonable” as their demands were justifiable.
THE WHISTLER recalls that the demands include the immediate release of all arrested protesters, justice and compensation for citizens who died due to police brutality, and inauguration of independent panels by state governments to investigate and prosecute all errant policemen.
Others were psychological evaluation and retraining of operatives of the defunct SARS and increase in police officers’ remuneration, amongst others.
The former vice president said his first appeal to Buhari was for him to resist, “the temptation to use further maximum force on #EndSARS protesters.”
Secondly, Atiku urged the president to, “appeal to their reason by speedily implementing their reasonable demands. The use of maximum force will aggravate, rather than placate.”
He said, “When the government shows that it cares, the citizens will farewell. Now is the time to apply reason, rather than brute force.”
Atiku further appealed to the president to, “talk to the nation, and particularly the youth of Nigeria.”
THE WHISTLER recalls that one of the initial five-point demand of the protesters was for the president to address them in a live broadcast.Follow us on social media:
