These??? Plenty doubt in my mind. These kinds are not capable of such. you need to find out from one who survived or witnessed such killings to explain tell how professional the killers are when they attack... #justwondering

Isn't it time something serious was done about this issue? Or are they waiting for more gruesome killings? Fire brigade approach; that is the Nigerian approach.
