“She tied a girl.
Poured kerosene on her and set her ablaze.
Such a woman the moment she reduced the dignity of the girl also lost her dignity and any form of rights.
She deserved every slap Ordinary President gave her and more.
She deserves no respect or dignity.”
On the other hand, Aproko Doctor wrote,
“He had NO right to hit her. He is not judge and jury, if we say he can, then others can, if others can, others will. Where does it end?
Get angry yes! Use that anger to ensure justice is served. We’re not animals.”
Ikenna Agha wrote,
“You people crying “unprofessionalism” ….Ahmad can actually claim he doesn’t know what came over him too before he landed her the slaps since She wants to be unfortunate. Equation balanced.”
“Was the slap justified? YES!
Was he right for slapping her? NO!
Was he being professional? NO!
In summary, he was very wrong for slapping her.
As a professional, you have to be profesdional at all times and not allow your emotions get the best of you.”
