Not long ago, something happened, I’ve always heard about it, but never experienced it. A police man killed a truck driver because of # 100, when we started hearing gunshots, the Hausa guys around started shooting randomly because one of them was killed.
Due to the shooting between the Hausa guys and the police men, there are dead people. One mom was shot while we were running in our bus. I haven’t recovered, I’m still scared.
How do some people differ from animals because of # 100 o?
