    So, would his family keep mute and accept it as a natural disaster? They should sue the state government for fallen tree murder. In the UK, a falling tree missed killing a famous black actress and her family. The council quickly went to remove the falling or staggering tree.

    We have shallow laws in Nigeria. Sue the local government and the state government now. Rubbish! Was he not a lawyer? Other lawyers should fight for him although he is dead. Please, I don’t want to hear of any fallen tree again. I am very angry.
