"What is the need to suspend the movie producer? Are there any kids among the victims Instead of suspending the Adanma production, why not caution the sailer? How many people here fasten their seat belts while driving or in the car? Are you guys trying to do eye service, which is medicine after death? If there should be a blame, let it go to those driving the boat. It's their responsibility to provide a safety jacket, not the producer."


"All of them are now producers. Competition and envy. Everybody gets YouTube TV."


"On top 1 useless movie many lives gone."


"Oga why arrest her? Abeg rest, your own don dey too much. You were nice to keep us updated but you can’t say what will happen. That was life and it happens as painful as it seems, we can’t do anything."
