I am in Kagara and this situation is beyond sad

Reading Time: < 1 minute

74 more people are sleeping in the bandits den tonight, this is Kagara in Minna where students, staffs and relatives have been kidnapped just 3 days after 40 others were kidnapped in an NSTA bus, 8 of whom escaped.

Having followed and covered Kankara abductions and now this one, I can tell you for free that Nigeria’s security situation is at its worst stages now.

I can tell you first hand that these bandits are now a step ahead of our security apparatus

I can tell you that these incessants attacks are now statements, an agitation to be heard

I can tell you now for a fact that there are “genuine” bandits and criminal bandits, there are differences.

The situation is scary. Today again we spent hours in danger zone covering this yet another heart wrenching story.

I am in Kagara and this situation is beyond sad
