    If it was pdp chieftain that was murdered, fani kayode and pdp would have been accusing apc by now.

    It takes a murder for people to believe that this is not a game and all the signing of peace accord will do no good if all this pilfered monies are being used to indiscriminately finance do or die politics. There is only one key thing President Jonathan said a while back during this electoral season that I appreciated (during the Abuja peace accord signing with Buhari and Kofi Annan). That it is high time we reviewed the winner takes all mentality of our political climate. It should be an inclusive government and must be reflected based on the percentage of votes garnered or maybe legislative seats so other parties can also have their members in the ruling government at the end of the day depending on how they poll. I think that route with a restriction of campaign financing will allow us to start getting rid of assassins for hire during the political season and may help civil policing better.

    What was Samuel Doro doing in an Islamic party? Being a Christian man APC miscreant killers probably thought he joined their party to spy on them.

      otile you have no reason to be among the living, you are so consumed by anger and hatred. what do you gain by such utterance?

    I don’t think the killing is political. It likely has to do with their age-old land conflict with Fulani herdsmen.
