It is very disheartening that people no longer have faith of protection in this country. No one is even sure of living up to the next second due to the constant unexpected killing happening in Nigeria of late.
In the past few months, hundreds of Nigerians have lost their lives to the hands of bandits and suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Some are being abducted and up till this moment their lives are under probability. These are the things the government of Nigeria needs to be looking into.
These sudden emergence of bandits and Fulani herdsmen have turned the entire country into a death zone. Everyone now afraid of associating.
In everything, all that is required now is for justice to be given to Olajide without further delay.
Those perpetrators should be brought to book.
