  1. Many things are happening in Nigeria lately,people are killing others and framing it as suicide, to me,for a policemen in Nigeria to commit suicide because of salary,he must be an honest policeman. His wife,coworkers or immediate family members must be people of interest in investigation if there will be any…sad.

    • YEAH,I CONCUR AND ALARMING RATES OF SUICIDES REMINDS ME OF BUHARIS TYRANNICAL RULE IN THE 80S..A LOT OF CIVIL SERVANTS,RETIREES ETC GRIEVING FOR THEIR SALARIES AND ORJI KALU IS CAMPAIGNING EXTRA 4 YRS FOR HIM.LET 2019 COME

  2. People should be paid their salaries, gratuity and pension as at when due. Why frustrate a person who sweated the best part of his working life serving his county? There is God. The powers that be should know they too will one day retire from service and need to resettle. Mchweew!
