Cool FM show anchor has taken his newly found 'social critique' up a notch as he addresses the happenings concerning the Lekki Gardens building collapse issue which has led to the loss of lives, mainly construction workers.

He seems to be puzzled about why this recent accident had received more attention compared to the Synagogue incident where a building owned by popular Lagos clergy, Prophet T.B. Joshua had collapsed killing hundreds of people, most who are foreigners.

Freeze asks the question, ”What really is Justice???"

"I have no qualms seeing a young man who committed a crime pay for that crime. Life is sad, before Richard came along, you could not dream of buying a house in LEKKI for 20million naira, his dream was to make choice housing affordable and available. Somewhere down the line mistakes were made and lives were lost! And yes I agree…… Someone must pay! ,

"Now my questions;Why is he in handcuffs and remanded in prison when that ‘prophet’ whose building collapsed and killed more people than Ebola, Lassa fever and this alleged ‘LEKKI gardens’ put together is walking free??? Why is that prophet not in handcuffs too??? It was even alleged, that he didn’t show up in court the last time the courts sat,

"Is this true??? If it is true, then why is Richard ‘remanded’ in prison while Mr prophet ‘comes from home’??? Is there a special court for ‘prophets’ or do we have special ‘laws’ for them???
Is our government afraid of prophets???."

He took his satirical stand further by offering a comment, more like an advise as he puts it. He said, "My humble advice: Richard should be released to go home and attend hearings from home like the ‘prophet’. Or the ‘prophet’ should be picked up, handcuffed and locked in the same cell with Richard while he attends trial!"

The presenter attempts to mock what he considers an act of unfairness and inequality which is quite common in the Nigerian society where preferential treatment are given to some reputable individuals over others who do not carry the weight they can pull in the society.

Lekki Gardens MD, Richard Nyong might have been a successful real estate entrepreneur, but he clearly does not command the influence which the prophet has.
