It was absolutely nonsense and witch hunting by the exclusive authority; whom used abusive power to intimidating outspoken Nigeria. This is not the rule of democracy but militocracy with barbarism. The major problem is insecurity ; unemployment ; lack of visionary and sentimental chauvinism. Democracy is an excellent institutions where rules of law and especially freedom of speech are made paramount . Nigeria is a mega nation or continental alliance that needed a better represrntation in the international and national arena. Historian are busy with every events.
