    Imam Buhari should be banished from Nigeria for introducing kidnapping. Ever since Imam bagged Dikko into a diplomatic luggage the practice of has taken a turn for the worse in continent Nigeria. The unholy practice may never end in Arewa.

    The Emir of Bukkuyum is not as prominent as the headline suggests. At least we know the ranking of Northern Emirs and this one is not within the first ten. Premium Times please mellow down screaming headlines. Meanwhile I join other admirers in praying for his safe return unharmed.
