    Halima Ibrahim.

    What happened to the rest of the story?

    Why did you add and remove what’s what?

    I lost a Brother today.

    Martins is His Name. He is not a cultist but one who was at the hotel in question, because He was in possession of marijuana decided to flee using the ceiling only for a police Man to try to scare Him out,not knowing that it was His Head He shot.

    In an Hotel room, shooting at someone who was running from Him, unarmed in no way?

    I or the deceased are in no way affiliated to the above mentioned (posted) person’s as the photo presents and will in no wise entertain any unguided inputs.

    The medium you serve hear from our lawyer soon for you lack of verifications before generalizing, hence depicting that the deceased was part of the gang arrested for their societal misconduct.
