A bullet is said to be a piece of metal that functions alongside a gun. Without a bullet, a gun is as good as useless. A bullet in the wrong hand can used to commit a crime or bring justice when in the right hand by law. A bullet fired into the air can be used to disperse people, but at close range can kill or put the live of it's victim in pain.
While a bullet can be called LIVE ammunition - a bullet which when fired from the gun can kill or wound it's victim. While a bullet can as well be BLANK ammunition - one that can't kill, but can weaken or disperse people gathered especially during a protest. A protest by law, is a citizen's right and meant to be peaceful. A live bullet is ONLY used when life is threatened as a result of weapon in the wrong hand/s, others blank bullets or even water canon is used instead.
Thus, understanding the difference between the types of bullets we've and looking at the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre in Lagos State on October 20/10/2020 by the Nigerian Army is key. You need NOT be told that the codes of conducts were breached and LIVE ammunition/bullets were unleashed on peaceful protesters that wield no weapon even while they were singing the National Anthem and raising the Flag.
Thank you for dropping my BLOG. But, it's a sad thing today that rather than take responsibility for the drama they acted, there's blame shifting from the Army to the Governor and now the Federal Government on CNN and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Uptrennd to the MOON.☀👑🙌🚀
