“The insecurity situation in Nigeria is taking a dangerous twist at a time the focus of the political elites is only on the 2023 general elections. From the North to the South, it has always been a sad story of one day, one trouble. One can hardly sleep with two eyes closed for the fear of kidnappers, bandits, armed robbers, assassins, thugs, Boko Haram, herdsmen and ISWAP
“I did not meet Michelle in person, but we interacted on few occasions. There was a time I asked her if she was related to my colleague, Dr Bazunu of Fine and Applied Arts Department in DELSU, Abraka but she said it could just be namesake. She was an easy going fellow. So I wondered her crime to be killed at her prime. May her soul torment her killers! Amen.”
