"I understand that everyone is pained. but I don't think this is the right way to go, because we're destroying and vandalizing our own properties."

Martins Sole:

"The thing this government and APC with their sympathizers don't realise that this protest is supported by virtually every person that wants progress in the country.
"Even in the north, more people than you know sympathize and support this movement even if they do secretly. So many northern brothers are talking secretly.
"Within every government Ministries and agencies, there are supporters. Even within the Presidency there are supporters. The government thought by paying thugs to fight or dislodge protesters violently, by sending the same army and police the youth are fighting to kill the youth will put an end to the protest. They don't know that they have attracted more sympathizers for the protesters even those same thugs, within the police and Army.
