    It is good to know that something is in the works to unravel the perpertrators of this dastardly act. The truth is that an average Nigerian Policeman is a potential murderer. The other day in Abuja, as I was heading into town from the airport, and it was raining, a team of policemen in a pickup ran a toyota camry into the big gutter right in my presence and sped off without even bothering to check the fate of the occupants of the hapless vehicle. I was left with no choice than to park my car and turn into an emergency medic to assist the injured citizens!

  2. Thank God that the IGP have taken a bold step in addressing the issue of slay individuals by the Nigeria Police Force.
