Everyday this country proves it can be deader than it currently is. Animal kingdom of a country. The revolution they are looking for they will soon find it. That survival of the fittest they are claiming, someone stronger will soon come and take over.

Let the judiciary keeps watching till Buhari sinks the arm of govt completely.
Is it not a judge that would handle the judgment? Let the judiciary eat their fleshes and drink their bloods by themselves. They will eat one other from within out. Fools.
