conspiracy in police cell…how does this guy get into the police cell with a rope as claim by the police? Same police refused the bail of this my innocent bros yesterday as i was told, the said police threatened that Abaomege will rather carry him as a dead man today! So many unanswered questions here. T.Y Danjuma warned that Nigeria should defend themselves but i never belief it will come to this level. I wish i’m a SAN, i would have digged to the end of this barbaric act. We can’t just accept this, my little brother needs justice
