On Friday, the official Twitter account of the Nigerian Army tweeted out a video of Trump's remarks from Thursday along with the caption, "Please Watch and Make your Deductions".

In response to the Nigerian Army's tweets using President Donald Trump's words to justify the fatal shooting of stone-throwing protesters and the subsequent issuing of a statement denouncing Amnesty International's calls for accountability, the organisation has asked the two governments to stop justifying rights abuses.
