Nigeria has a very wrong understanding of what security is all about. Security operatives shouldn’t be for “HARD MEN.” We simply gather illiterate, aggressive young men and hand our lives to them without taking them to classes to teach them the do’s and don’t’s of the profession.


Another social media user condemned the security Operatives for Killing innocent people. 


[quotation name=’Ezeudo Foster stated’]


This country is cursed forever,too many innocent people are crying for justice inside graves, A country that are killing themselves without looking back. A security man will shoot innocent people that are not with any arm,while the terrorists are given chieftaincy title, and the government is aware of that, and see it as a normal thing, nobody will ask questions, no body will be held  accountable for that.news update, 30 is dead in Kaduna just now,road accident.

They were chasing Yahoo boys, not even armed robbers and they were shooting anyhow. I swear all police in Nigeria starting from IG down to the lowest rank need their brains to be checked. Awon werey.
