  1. It is left for God to judge. Buhari and the core North may pervert justice and intimidate the judiciary but God almighty will always have the final say.

    1. Yes yes, u are right....
      If dey like, let them paid those freed pple money on top of their freedom ...... God is not asleep like men.... No one fights for Him ..... No one kills on His behalf..... He judges according....... Sebi, the woman is dead already and has gone.....and her family members have been gotten over her demise gradually...... Let Buhari, the judge and others at the back doors remain alive and not die again...... Let's wait & see!

  2. I am beginning to doubt the credibility of our courts and their judgements. A woman was murdered by religion fanatics and you think they do not have a case to answer! Is it because the victim is a Christian and she "insulted" your prophet? Religion of peace indeed

  13. Go yi fourth and kill another innocent victim for a crime you can't even explain. They ninety nine days for the thief, one day for the owner.

    One day one day Bush meat go catch Hunter. You people go around killing innocent people all in the name that they made blasphemous statement against your God, who has no ability to fight for himself unless you fight for him. What exactly constitute blasphemy.

    And to the judge that delivered d judge. Justice doesn't belong to any religion. One day when there are no Christians to kill because they have moved away from your mist, it's you and your family who will be d next victim. karma will catch up with you.

  14. What a pity.that is why christians are supposed to be cautious as a serpent yet as innocent as a dove. Even Jesus avoided statements and replies that will indict him. It is sad though but one should have nothing to do with an aboki knowing that their religion supports and fund violence which the likes of the president and the chief magistrate Jibril will condem openly and support back stage. Now we know why Boko haram is unstopable because the authority partner's with them.

  17. What's Imo state indigenes waiting for? What's SE governors waiting for? Appeal the case or institute another against Kano state government. They won't do so because it's not politically expedient. We keep waiting for FG to fight for us when it's our local leaders who are gambling with our lives

  18. Read well, do you notice that there is no counsel for the murdered woman. Most commentators here is blaming the court, north and religion when the woman has no advocate. Can't CAN set up advocate for these woman? The case can be appealed.
