    That accused Lawyer is not fit to be a lawyer. I’m not sorry to say this. Apart from doing something contrary to the ethics of her profession, she cannot control her emotion.This is really bad and undermine this profession. She must be punished for acting so immature. If you are in this Profession and you cannot control your emotion, then you don’t belong there.

    Its high time someone asked Red to come out. Though I wasn’t a fan of hers, but I enjoyed the way she took on Bezo. She was d Angel & Bezo was the demon (he still is). The rivalry between them was splendid. Good arguments & well constructed sentences. The likes of Metu, Hunter & the others sure was a good complement.
    Now naijagists has new additions (a welcome development) but…..#lipssealed#…..I read some of their comments & I know the reasons behind so many ***** gra****e in the country.
    Before I make my comment on the above, God gave me 2 ears to listen, one to listen to 1 party, the other to listen to the other party, let Nina state her part of the story before courts of public opinion crucify her. #my stroll continues but before then, where is Angel Red#
