Nigeria Insecurity: Who is Safe?

Insecurity in Nigeria is a menace. The question as to who is safe in Nigeria is hard to answer. As presented above is just the tip of the eyes erg. So many Nigerians have died at the hands of unknown gunmen. The question as to how these unknown gunmen have the guns they use is a topic for another day. The question now is who is safe in Nigeria.

The trace of only the top ten Nigerians who died in the hands of unknown gunmen reveals that no Nigerian is safe. If unknown gunmen can kill these high-ranking politicians and military officers, who else can they not kill.JAMB Form

It is surprising to me why some people can just take laws into their hands and start destroying innocent lives for nothing. The irony of the whole saga is that they run away after killing others because they do not want to die. Therefore, it is high time we started calling on God who alone can save Nigerians from their death at the hands of unknown gunmen.

They are unknown gunmen because no one has been able to identify them. The police cannot go after them because their abode is unknown. They even kill high-ranking soldiers and talk less of mere police officers. No common person dares to confront them. All that can be said in Nigeria now is that our security lies in God’s hands.

Bottom Line

Concisely, many Nigerians have died for no just cause. People who would have made Nigeria better than it is now being killed on daily basis. May God save Nigerians from being killed by unknown gunmen.
