The witness, @Roland_speaks continued via various tweets on twitter:

“This Government led by Buhari should be ready to kill us all.”

“How can you kill a Final year student for protesting, Nigeria is a mad nation.”

“How can you shoot a Final year student to death for protesting? Nigeria is a cursed country.”

“A lot of things need to be done, killing Nigerian student is part things to be done by APC led federal government. Sour country.”

“After Comr Peter was shot, he was rushed to LuLu Briggs for treatment but he couldn’t survive the gun wound, RIP comrade.”

“What will Nigerian police force and Uniport Management tell the parents of late Peter?,” he wrote.
