Our Nigeria today is money sick and people are actually doing anything for money so as to make ends meat.
This is so tragedic and alarming. Sometimes i get confused who is to blame? The robbers, Police men, CBN or the Government?
The policemen who were shot dead could possibly be people’s husbands and fathers or potential fathers as the case may be.
I think the Government should be more security conscious especially when it comes to driving or moving with CBN bullion vans because apparently, eyes are choking.
The rate of kidnapping has increased. Robbery cases has become the order of the day.
People are hungry, death everywhere, Poverty and hunger strike increasing so rapidly in our country of today.
Obviously, these armed robbers have also devised more weapons and means of making their operation more successful.
The Government should wake up! Import more weapons. Such that can protect police on duty no matter the number of bullets that is fired at him, he wouldnt be harmed.
To the one who calls himself “A thief”. You are heading for doom because, there is no way you can make head way with people’s sweat in the first place. So instead of going into stealing, why not learn a skill and trust God to prosper the work of your hands?
Life is a seed and if you sow blood, prepare to have your own blood shared.
