    Why are we going to make things harder for us.when i born to see nigeria in those days. It was better people because of tradition. As for now we are not keeping to that tradition. We are follow follow the white people our children become out of control. Not like school and parent control children. In those days, if you can not see your son or daughter doing bad one report punisbed by the school. Uniform and govt cast out that privilege. In conclussion to the fight. In those days if you are offended and come to anger we fight and finished with our grevances without gun exchange. We now doing what one will use gun to kill somebody. Two fighting suppose to be seperating or you beat me i left. So that mind will clear without thinking of evil. For the fact that the one is wounded would be treated by the other guy . Matter close. No jail for matter of wrong of two men. Those guys need to be released.
