The news report is that the president has approved the sum of five million naira only as compensation for the families of the corp members who lost their lives during the post electio violence in the north.

My question is,"is five million naira adequate?"

@Ngozi. Whilst appreciating and agreeing with you that no amount of money will equate to a life, don't you think that we would probably have a new chief of police if the president were to have paid N50b in damages for the lives and property lost once again in this last of the incessant mayhem in the north. Don't you think that the low values placed on the lives of the common man is partly responsible for how willing we are to throw such lives away. I bet you that the award against the Airforce in the infamous beating of a woman did not go down well with the command. We need to put a proper pecuniary value on lives and make it a little more expensive to waste.
