    Chibuke...it amazed me that some retarded people like you still exist in this age of information. So that some miscreants behave stupidly, makes the entire state stupid. Who in this country is not aware of all the dastardly atrocities being perpetuated by people from your area not to talk of the biggest kingpin of kidnappers EVANS. As that make the whole of your generation stupid? Please when you write, write like someone that at least finished primary school. Thank you and God bless the people of Edo state.
