Anytime I see news like this I laughed and think of Sowore, because Nigerians are not yet ready for freedom and so sad Sowore is paying the price of a Hero to nuisance, just imagine how people are killing themselves for those that doesn't even care about them but they cannot kill themselves for their freedom and of the children and the generations unborn.
