  1. With all this how can we fully accept police is our friends??

  2. Folks soon you will hear that some of those in ASOROCK AND SOME STATE GOVERNORS ARRESTED ON HIGHWAY FOR ARMED ROBBERY WITH POWERFUL WEAPONS LIKE THIS. watch!

    NIGERIA IS REALLY IN VERY BAD SHAPE.
    GOD HAVE MERCY ON THIS COUNTRY PLEASE!!!

  3. am not surprise to hear this and I will not be surprise that they will all be release after a while, we all remember the case of a Christian woman who was murder in front of her shop with so many people witnessed the murder of the woman yet the attorney general of the state freed the suspect and let them go. are we talking about the killings of innocent people in Benue state and Enugu by Fulani Herds men , none of this case have ever been heard of again. a man named his Dog Buhari he was arrested and charged later released on bail, etc, I red an article on vanguard news paper earlier today where 3 people were convicted of murder in Lagos and was sentenced to death by hanging today. when an Hausa man commits crime they go free but any other tribe pays dearly. they will go free so lets not jublilate

  4. OKAY, WHILE WASTING TAX PAYERS MONEY TO TRY THIS FOOLS IN COURT , THEY MOST BE READY FOR HARD LABOUR IN THE AGRIC FIELD TO PUT BACK TO THE SOCIETY, PLEASE IF ANYONE IN GOVERMENT IS READING , THIS PEOPLE THAT HAS COMMITED ALL THIS CRIME SHOULD BE PUT TO WORK IN FARM TO GIVE BACK TO PEOPLE , GOVERMENT SHOULD ORGANISE A PRISON WORK PROGRAMS IN THE PRISON FACILITIES TO MAKE THIS PEOPLE WORK AND GIVE BACK TO THE PEOPLE , IT WILL BE A SHAME TO JUST PUT THEM IN LOCK UP DOING NOTHING BEFORE THEY DIE ,EATING , DRINKING AND SLEEPING ON THE TAX PAYERS BACK, THEY MUST LEARN A HARD LEASON, AFTERALL , THEY ARE NO GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY .

  5. It’s a serious problem but we need to commend police authorities for exposing those who evil officers who had deviated from professional code of conduct to embarrassed the force. despite this we still have great men and women in this same force that is making our country proud in all its ramifications. God protect us from our enemies
