    Sorry may his soul rest in peace. Carwards like them shame on them. they killed a 66 years old man for what? I believed is these same group of killers who also assassinate my brother by cutting his neck and shut his two legs with gun on his way to Calabar.

    These sons of beeches and prostitutes in Benin killing innocent souls must be very very careful with these their barbaric act. Sons without fathers mothers cannt train them all they do is turn into killers. Prostitutes in Benin stop having these children if you can not bring them up in a good way.

    God will punish all those who will not want to repent and punish their generation and their parents and whole family if at all they have one. They will end up not getting any money out of their victims.

    The reason why this heinous crime is happening on many occasions in Nigeria is because we don’t have tough laws. I remember during the regime of Gen. Tunde Idiagbon/ Buhari. You have to think twice before you commit atrocious crime like this. During that time there was a strict law that guided this under decree and they don’t joke about it. If you are being caught that is it you are gone for good. But now since there is law in my beloved Country, the hired assassin will continue to triumph plus they will be having field day since most of them are working for our politicians. It is high time to strengthen our laws otherwise Nigeria will remain just as Hell on Earth.
