  2. Ironically, here in Nigeria, cultists, armed robbers, kidnappers and the police kill more Nigerians than in SA and most of this cases remain unsolved
    How about that ?

  3. They should form a group and nominate a recognised leader to speak and represent them especially in cases like these. It's just sad that no one is actually representing them. Consulate ke!!
