    But why covering his face?
    This is part of what is killing us in that country
    So you think we don’t have to know him abi? Then why telling us? Seeing his face may even help the police in their investigation if they are actually doing any,
    Coz we might see someone somewhere that might have something to say about him on their past operation. Pls watch forensic files show very well, mumu people

    The is a serious issue and not funny at all. By the way why covering his face? the reason why you should not have covered his face is because he has betrayed his people and work ethic standards. If we only left with these kind of unethical people in Nigeria Police Force then we are surely doomed.

    We really need to get our act together in this Country because we don’t really know who are Boko Harams, Herdsmen or real kidnappers among our brethrens. We always attribute this misfortune to either Hausa-Fulanis or Herdsmen whereas the real kidnappers among us are truly kidnappers from our own people.
