Vandara Nao was only protecting his friend that got shot Haben Kifle is the real murderer Haben kifle is a sick twisted young and young minded human being and I know him well he was planning a robbery from the beginning its the word on the street all Nao did was protect Deveaux from getting killed he does not deserve to be charged with murder.
