A lot of things are really happening in this country nowadays that is too horrible to describe. When did we become so violent that fellow humans are treated like animals? Can law and order be restored to a nation that shared brotherly love and care for one another? When did things go wrong that human lives become 3 for #1 in Nigeria. We have lost it as a nation to have allowed a man to dehumanize fellow beings to the level of chaining them like animals. This man must be made to face the law and dealt with accordingly. Haa! It is horrible
