  • Honestly, I do not know what was achieved by the publication of the crushed body of the unfortunate female student.

    These pictures should not have been published under any circumstance out of respect for the deceased and her family.

    Do Nigeria media has any rules that guide or requirements that must be met before a photograph is deemed in good taste and hence publishable?

    May her soul rest in peace!
