“Is it that they were transported to the cells with booze in the vehicle?” Lucy Ekwam wondered.
“There are so many problems among the young people if they are drowning in alcohol this early,” Bonga commented.
“You can’t just lift human beings just like maize sacks. Let’s respect humanity and treat our own people well. I hope the human rights section is watching at an angle,” another weighed in.
