    This is the reason why we need legislation similar to the American 2nd Amendment passed in Nigeria. Robbers will think twice before carrying out an operation if they know people have guns.

    Texans don’t play that game, everyone has a gun. Terrorists and robbers die on the job daily, no cops needed. The terrorists that tried to carry out a mass shooting at an event in Garland last year were shot dead in the parking lot by citizens ……. enough said.

    I personally believe that guns do more good than evil……..

      I liked your comment by mistake.
      Do you also know how many children/teenagers have killed themselves because of these guns? Fine, you may state that it is their parents’ fault that they didn’t secure the gun safe, however with the statistics of how many mentally deranged people are on the loose and have permits to carry and even carry open in some US states, I don’t think it does more good.

      It is easier to get a gun in America that it is to get smoked turkey.

      @RealNigerian…Really? Is life a James Bond movie to you or the Wild Wild West? So everyone should carry guns? Because everyone has the same level of morality and our reflexes are the same?
      Are you just speaking out of random sentiments or do you have numbers from research to prove that guns do more good? Because that’s not true.
      Imagine gun ownership in Nigeria….people will be shooting at will over random issues….

    So sad. A very brave man. He should be celebrated. Nigeria sucks. What did Zenith Bank or the Nigerian Police Force do to recognise him posthumously? Any package for his family? RIP Sir. A hero indeed.

    The video gave me the chills. Just looking at the people going about their daily business. Any one of them could have been caught in the crossfire.
    RIP brave officer. I hope his family got compensated.

    If he was a politician,he would have been flown abroad for treatment.He died two months after,meaning he would have survived.

      Not really. He was in ITU meaning he was not fit to fly. Also people die in the abroad in ITU. Don’t always be quick to demean the Nigerian health system.

    Wow sad, Don’t think I can watch the video. He was ‘in intensive care for up to two months’. I don’t know the detaisl but perhaps if we had a better healthcare system he might have lived to tell the tale. It’s a shame we can’t all afford to go to the UK……….Do better Mr President

    My heart bleeds for the death of this brave police man, Sgt Chukwudi. It would be nice to get details of a donation account for people to give towards the upkeep of the family he left behind. May his soul rest in perfect peace, amen.
