  1. Death of owolabi precious during the clash between shiitees and the police in Abuja recently has become a terrible issue Nigerians must face to tackle squarely. Corps members are always victims many times. It depicts us as people who do not care about life of human being. The young man died while serving his father land! Is it a crime to obey the law of the land. The NYSC authorities must find other means of providing tighter security for corps members to avoid ugly situations like the one which led to death of young owolabi. It is good the court has done justice to shiitees menace. It is becoming hot for the Nation to continue abhoring criminals in the name of religion. This court order is warning to other killers in the name of anything.
