Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has taken to Twitter to celebrate Nigerian who was the overall best student in West Africa in the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) .

“This is the time to tackle the menacing issue of child molestation in our country. This is what we all should be tweeting about not Davido & Burna boy fighting in Ghana. Na so una go take lead Nigeria if handed over to you?? Wake up, Nigerian youths,” he said, referring to the alleged molestation of an 11-year-old schoolboy at Deeper Life School.
