  1. Nwadike, by now you should have known that nobody is above the law. secondly, because you are in uniform and with gun does not automatically makes you have superior argument over the other person. We need to change our attitude and orientation is not all about government but we as the citizen must embrace the change.Change is not all about selling a bag of rice below the current market price but our abilities to be able to differentiate between good and bad.

  2. That's the point. When his salary can hardly feed his family. I'm not attempting to justify crimes, but this is one of the consequences of poverty. How do you want a hungry man to change/ react for good.

  3. I hope that members of the police force will not take sides in this matter and circumvent the judicial process. It is a pity that we have found ourselves in a society where those that are supposed to uphold the law and enforce it are the ones breaking it. Killings of this nature have far reaching effects on the well-being of the left behind family members and have contributed to the number of destitute, escalated crimes and encouraged other vices in the society.
