    ‘A lone gunman opened fire and killed four people who were singing Christmas carols and a number of people in the vicinity were apprehended’.
    Was the gunman among the people apprehended or as usual did the colonel’s men apprehend innocent people likely to be Christians in the area while letting the gunman probably someone who has issues with Christians, literally get away with murder.

    Kaduna showcases itself a murderous state during Christmas. Non-Muslims must be extra vigilant. Kaduna has a government of diminutive character.
