  1. So many sad/bad news today. Nawaa oo.

    Imagine about 6.7 million Nigerians yet to collect their pvc's. How then do we expect a better Nigeria if we don't vote in the right candidate next month?

  2. If as a parent you refuse to train your children, this is what you will get (pregnancy) when you pamper them

  3. I thought schools are yet to resume. To beat a child is no more effective in correcting them . What will they now become when they get to university if they are jumping fence and visiting hotels in secondary school? O chimoo.

  4. 6.7 million PVCs uncollected?😲

    Fellow Nigerians, please, go and collect your PVCs oo. How can we elect good leaders without voting? There is no room for political apathy this year bikonu.

  5. You don't know the man but you took petrol and burnt him to death. Aren't you a psycho?

  6. Ohakim, see how innocent lives were wasted. You people should also provide bullet proof vehicles for your escorts. They defended you and died. May their soul rest in peace and may God comfort their loved ones.

  7. Don’t mind him and his corrupt band of Nigerian politicians & their cronies. As if his life is worth the lives of four people! Classism and wickedness at its worst.
