    Our useless police force. They always look for excuse to give to not investigate all these senseless killings in the land. Every time, they claim killings are cult related. Cult related or not, taking of another person's life is a crime that the police have to unearth by all means. So stop this flimsy lazy excuse of cult related. To stop crime in the country, the police have to go in full force to stop cultism especially in institutions of higher learning. Cultism is destroying the country just like boko haram. No difference between the two.
