    Finally, somebody is talking. I have kept wondering why since this unfortunate incident no one has wondered aloud this might not be your typical “innocent” Lagos hit-and-run case, why no one has bothered to ask anyone with information on the incident to come forward or even offered a reward for such information.

      My brother,your comment is inspired,just like you,I’ve been wondering why nobody has raised an eyebrow with regard to the circumstances of his death,was he jogging in the middle of the road?(I accept accidents do happen) but considering the antecedent of the man he worked for(and dined with) this mysterious death is worth investigating…indeed like you said finally somebody is talking,but would the the IG keep his word???
