  1. Am not surprised that he is an Igbo man. They are the one tarnishing Nigerias name all over the world and still calling us animals in a zoo. We all need to work together and make our country the toast of other nations. We all need to be ambassadors of Nigeria when we step out of the country and exhibit the best of character. This is the only panacea to earning back our pride as a people and country.
