    That you are the only son of your family is not enough reason for you to risk human life. Me, i am the only graduate in my family, with so many reaponsibilities, but i will not because of that put human life at risk all in the search of money. Your excuse is so lame and your case need to be treated like a criminal case

    There are some situations you’ll find yourself in life that will make u resort to illegal acts, but they should have left it after acquiring little money the first time to start up something. Fuel n kerosene, n u continued in the act risking innocent lives, Haba. This is selfishness n wickedness of the highest order.
