      Idi○t, who told you the creep is a Christian? Many Odua Muslims answer Christian names while committing heinous crimes. Some of your buddies on this blog like julius & maria are devout Muslims like you, yet they assume Christian names to attack Igbo people. An unsuspecting reader can easily mistake you for a Christian especially when you quote the Holy Bible and condemn evil doers, not knowing that like these other people you are a deceiving Moslem.
