    If you take a good look at this hero named Bash Ali, i think he is sick and needs help, pardon me to say that i suspect a mental health, probably depression induced by his environment. Bash Ali needs help and not prosecution, persecution or conviction, he needs an audience, he wants to actualize his dreams but the Nigerian political system is killing his dream.
