The Nigerian Army appeared to adopt words used by President Trump this week to justify their own use of deadly force in a crackdown against Muslim protesters.
In the video, Trump warns that soldiers deployed to the Mexican border could shoot Central American migrants who throw stones at them while attempting to cross illegally. "We're not going to put up with that", Mr. Trump says."They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back".
The Nigerian army posted the video on its account with a caption that read "Please watch and make your deductions".
Daniel Cormier Offers His Thoughts On Brock Lesnar’s Promo Skills
I don't need Brock [Lesnar]. "I've worked a long time again to be able to walk away and not be a guy that ends up on his back". A month or so ago, the UFC was desperate for a title fight to headline this weekend's UFC 230 card in Madison Square Garden .
Nigeria's defence spokesman John Agim said the army posted the video in response to criticism that its security forces had acted unlawfully. An Amnesty International report published Wednesday said 45 peaceful supporters of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) were killed by the Nigerian military and police.
But a spokesman for the Nigerian army says their decision to fire live rounds at protesters in Abuja was justified because they were armed, telling the BBC "this is what [Mr] Trump was talking about".
In Thursday's speech, Mr. Trump said any rocks thrown at the military would be treated like "a firearm".

The United States Embassy in Nigeria expressed concern over deaths resulting from the clashes between the Nigerian security forces and IMN, issuing a statement urging Nigeria's government authorities to "conduct a thorough investigation of the events and to take appropriate action to hold accountable those responsible for violations of Nigerian law". We are not going to put up with that.
"Video footage and eyewitness testimonies consistently show that the Nigerian military dispersed peaceful gatherings by firing live ammunition without warning, in clear violation of Nigerian and worldwide law", said Osai Ojigho, Director of Amnesty global Nigeria. "What are they then saying?" So a stone is a weapon.
"It seems the Nigerian military are deliberately using tactics created to kill when dealing with IMN gatherings".
Bolsonaro wishes to transfer to Jerusalem the embassy of Brazil in Israel
Those countries say that the status of Jerusalem is something that should be negotiated between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the plan, which Bolsonaro had promised during the election campaign.
Despite its history of massacring innocent civilians in the war with Islamist extremist group Boko Haram, detaining innocent citizens and raping women and girls fleeing war-torn communities, the Nigerian military has been the recipient of warplane sales and other gear from the United States. Last week, Cesar Sayoc Jr-a supporter of Mr Trump-was arrested for allegedly mailing explosive devices to CNN's NY headquarters. "Trump's brand of rough-and-tumble verbal pummelling heightened the rhetorical stakes for people of all political persuasions".
