      Oh, u forgot to comment on a post where the coach,( including his crew and players) who brought you from oblivion to stardom is being owed for 18 months. I know u and your group ran away as soon as u saw the story bcs the truth was in there. Now, you’ve popped ur head as a shameless idiot that you are. Your master omo9ja did same. Na thunder from amadioha forest go strike that una mouth una dy use talk nonsense. Ewu gambia
