  1. AM HAPPY, INFACT THIS WILL SHOW A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE TO OUR BAD LEADERS AND OTHERS. MUSTAPHA COULD NOT BELIEVE IT AFTER MANY YEARS. JUSTICE MUST BE DONE, TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

  2. mustapha thought he is so smart but i want
    to remind him of Dimka and how justice was served. So mustapha should know that evil men do live before them. Let them hang him cos that is justice and not an order

  3. those who live by the sword should as a matter of necessity social justice, equity and fair play perish by the sword, today Al_mustapha will join his death master in the underworld.
