      Why are 90% or more of those featured from the Yoruba part of the country , is this a coincidence or just resentment about being ‘out of central political power’ at the moment, just asking

      Your comment is very sad. This is why Nigeria is like this. Unnecessary tribalist remarks.

      Like seriously,he doesn’t read the news before commenting , his comments are always out of place, doesn’t mk any sense. Its scary to think that this person has access to the internet n is an adult.
