    So unfortunate!
    Sadly this is what communities that allow these criminals settle amongst them have to face. Southerners receive sense!

    I can’t understand this since when did these people start carrying arms, the country is broken no government, no police, to sum it up every part or society is broken. It should be simple common sense any body caught with arms apart from the police or army should get automatic lengthy prison sentence, how difficult is it for the politicians to implement? God help our country.

    What is Buhari”s regime doing about illegal arms ownership?
