  • when i said that i can’t believing that an icon in the country can connive with criminals to zink down the country i thought i was only making statement but i was factual about it. now look at this, custom officer working hand in hand with the so call boko haram to perpetuate evil in the country causing many futures to be diverted. well i know that we can’t substitute his life with the many that have died, we hand him over to God.

  • their is no God here, that is the problems with nigerians, this rethorical trust is not the right solution. This is why cruelty prevails. Action must be taken!
    I believe in Allah (God)but not always that Allah will intervene. Their are laws that God abides by and leaving everything to Him to handle is the genesis of more problems and root to evil acts!

  • It is not a surprise because we all know that those guns and weapons is not flying in to the country from the air. But arresting them is not the most important thing. Let the law take care of it and the names of the form president,ministers,senators and governors should also be mention.
