  1. Suspension is not enough. That officer should be severely dealt with for the killing of Omobolanle. Enough of Police brutality. May her soul continue to rest in peace.

  2. My Sister eehn, ki Olorun maje ka ri esu o. Read some things about this Officer. That the Man was to be promoted come January and now the devil come go scatter.... See eh, this life ? Lemme jus stop here.
    May we not make ourselves willing tool for the devil in Jesus Name.

  3. Why does the NASS always increase the budget rather than decreasing? What do they always do with the extra money added to it.

  4. The only reason they keep stealing I’m the name of budget is because they know P.O is coming in next year and no more nonsense from then on 😂🤣
