This is abnormal, a complete show of shame. What comes across as excrement on the corridor of justice is totally in contrast to the quality, credibility, dignity, peace and progress that women represent for which they deserve the international celebration. Celebrating murder suspect and other suspects in custody is certainly not the best that Nigerian government under President Buhari, his Minister of Interior and Director General of the Service could project to the world as a way to mark International Women’s Day.
To what’ level can common sense be so uncommon to this APC regime? It’s a shame that issue of this high sensitivity could be given a silly excuse that insults the men and women of good conscience, especially the painful hearts of the family of the murdered Mr Usifo Ataga.
