I remembered when this man was just made COAS, he boasted of his exploits in the army while serving at ECOMOG, his trial of Oladipo Diya where he boasted that if given another opportunity he will do same thing. I remembered the Odi massacre vividly until he was relieved of his duties as COAS. Then he went blank…
