Smells fishy. When a government opts to offer bribes because “bandits are not criminals”, then be ready for more bandits seeking to make quick cash 💀 .....we are. The North is the problem of the North. The criminals have seen that kidnapping school children is now very lucrative since the govt keep paying the ransom demanded. When the likes of HRH Sanusi Lamido criticised the northern cultures that create desperate poor youths, the northern governors hated him. Now see where..
This will continue happening until the Governors realise that you can't pacify Bandits by begging them to take up amnesty rather you have to deal severely with them. It's a profiting business so they're all venturing into it. Who pays bandits, kidnappers, terrorists, herder, whatever they're called, money for goodness sake? Of course more groups will spring up.
Last time it was boys, now girls, this is gender balancing, I hope they also ensure federal character is applied, I don't want to hear marginalization ooo. Those who crafted this lucrative business really understands their audience. Una well done Wicked people. Evil government and leadership, may God help us in this nation
I think it is time for BuhariMustGo Nothing personal. We cannot watch the nation be shredded by insecurity when sane people are doing newspaper and incompetence is in power. May Buhari’s Nigeria not happen to you. Everything in shambles, lies are factored as the only faceplate He granted amnesty and he got the result.... Enjoy it while it last.
For peace to return in the north all those indigenous people in the should stop allowing fulani to hold any public post. . All fulani emirs should dethrone. . Don't allow them to hold any political power because check north today and you will understand what's happening MataWhale and Gumisheiker, over to you.
I give up oooooooooooo😭😭😭😭😭😭I thought there can be light at the end of the tunnel but the way things is going on this country it's only🙏🙏🙏 divine intervention that can keep this naija united Season what? This is pure consequence of rewarding crime, instead of putting stop to it, someone will go ahead to pay kidnappers to release their victims. Why can’t they be inspired to do more. Let see were this country is going to.
APC lying machine will come to defend this soon. He will tell us it’s nothing new..
