    What kind of Country are we living in? nobody is saved save in this Country no more. I really sympathize with the family of the victim especially the two young boys. The fact that their Country is boiling now under civil war makes me think about what will become of Nigeria if there is an out break of civil war. We should learn how to treat our visitors nicely because we may end up turning to them for help in future.
