This happened in the police station close to Old Market in Sokoto State. At the sound of the armed robbers heavy guns, which was like bombs, the DPO and one of his men quickly escaped through the back of the station, thinking they were about to be attacked by the dreaded Boko Haram.
This is how precarious the security situation in Nigeria has become. How sad!
If senior police officers are being killed by men with more sophisticated weapons and others are running away like this ones, what then is the hope of ordinary Nigerians?
Recall that the IGP announced recently that the force budgeted 2billion for police games. Wouldn’t it have been better if such fund were used to renovate their deplorable colleges, training of officers and procurement of more sophisticated firearms? God help us.
