When a crime has been committed, some suspects may be rounded up by the Police. If at the time of the commission of such crime, the victim had no proper opportunity to witness properly the committer(s) of such crime, for the sake of not prosecuting a wrong person, the law requires that an identification parade be conducted.

Having to read that the Nigerian government is about to connect Chad to the country's national grid is not impressing, especially, when millions of people in Nigeria still live in darkness. In the South, millions of people sleep and work without electricity, hence spending much money (which would have been used for something else) on fuel for generator purposes.
