  1. ANY NIGERIAN WHO DIES IN SOUTH AFRICA IS A FOOL FOREVER.

    YOU HONESTLY NEED NOT BE THERE.

    OF COURSE THE IBO MAN WILL NEVER HEED TO SUCH ADVISE.

    AND SO SOUTH AFRICANS DO NOT STOP UNTIL YOU HAVE PERISHED THEM ALL.

  2. This is not what the great Mandela would want…SAY NO to killing!!!
