    The CP shot dead in Enugu. I wonder what my country turns into and for the civilian like me cry as much as you can because no more to serve and protect quality in the NPF.

  • Warmonger

    When I said that we Igbos have to look inward for the solutions to our problems, some of you said I was not talking sense.
    This gentleman worked in one of the Awolowo states and was not killed by the Yorubas; and now he is visiting his hometown and we igbos killed him. We have been our own problems from day one; we killed and betrayed our leaders.
    When Ikemba sent one of us to go abroad and purchase arms during the civil war, he returned and stayed back in Lagos. Awolowo did not do that, the Yorubas did not do that, it was one of us that betrayed us just as it was one of us that betrayed and killed this innocent man. May his soul rest in peace.

  • Just like the first writer wrote if CP of police the agency respondsible for securing lives and property can be killed in cold blood! What of we ordinary Nigerians who have no body guards but God as our security?
    May his soul rest in peace, May God give his family the strenght to bear the loss.
    And Mr Igbo man the 2nd writer the earlier we start realising our selves as a Nation the better for us, let’s live the past to faith and destiny. What else do you want? Life is a vicious cirrcle, what goes arround comes arround. Is it not the Igbos that are in control now?
    If you can not devide the country now! Then forget all this thing you are saying and let’s see how we can build a prosprous Nigeria.
