  1. This will serve as lesson to other nt to be shooting anyhow in public,may their soul rest in peace and give the family fortitude to bear the loss.

  2. That serves him right. He got what he deserved. But come to think of it, hanging him will not bring back the dead little girl, losing another life is not the best judgement and does not proffer any solution. I can feel the pain and agony caused to the family of the deceased, GOD ALMIGHTY will grant you the strength to bear it.

  3. Wat d coporal did is vry vry bad.bt rember killing him by hanging is nt d solution,,i blv God himself will nt support such act.

  4. Sentenced to death just like that, justice has to take its place now only because its a corporal, if its all this upper hands in Govt. No one ill hear a nut… God have mercy on d poor…… Its a pity
