  1. Hmmm no wonder when i got there arround 3:40pm soldiers odered every person passing there to raise their hands up, i was supprise to see that but i needed to obey not knowing what had happen.

  2. So is it right for a soldier to kill someone just for breaking a traffic rule. Why not arrest and fine the poor lad. You guys are example to show that Nigerian will never get better. We should know our rights here
