    Emergency!!! we need to put a halt to all political activities in Nigeria. There is no saying, but or if. We have reached a stage whereby if we don’t put an end to politics, this Country will be darkest Country on earth. Politics gave birth to all these nowadays rituals in Nigeria. Nobody has ever been convicted of ritualism and people continue with their life’s despite all these malevolence that has engulfed our nation. The Police has team up with the ritualists by realeasing them to the street after getting bribe.

    That Commissional of police is part of the game otherwise he is not going to get promotion to where he is right now. I think the best solution now is to ban politics because the killing emanating from politics is alarming because everybody wants to sacrifice human being to secure a political position. Meanwhile, let us have an interim government and whenver we are ready we can go back to politics. We are certainly not mature enough to govern ourselves.

    Our Barbaric idea has further contributed immensely to our already damaged economic and social of our lives. We are now living in animal farm. Animals have more sense of reasoning than some Nigerians. Why is it now that the world is moving faster while we don’t even bother to make any progression.? Is this the kind of legacy we want to leave behind for our children? Why is it now that we are engaging in rituals? Very sad.

    Just sad and uncalled for. I actually live not too far from where it occurred. The security agencies really need to educate the populace concerning such incident to not touch the copse or the knife used in the process and stay clear of the scene not to cause obscurity to pinpoint the murderer.
