  1. why will someone just wake up in d Morin and take someone else life can u create a fly talkess of a full grown human being. may God judge who ever committed this wicked act.

  2. Cultists have become agents of terror raking lots of havoc and destruction especially in Benue,Rivers and Bayelsa states, without the government doing much to curtail their excesses. If something is not done urgently now it might be difficult to stop them in future.
