In response to his tweet, a Tweeter user said; “You are trying to incite violence against the peaceful protesters, go and watch “Sometimes in April” Your driver died bcos of accident not protest, without the protest people die in Nigeria through accidents, you trying to pin his death on peaceful protesters is a shame on YOU”.
