  1. THIS IS becoming another trend for kidnappers. I bet even Evans didn‘t go this far.

    Maybe after this, they will start planning on how to kidnap a whole passangers plane with full passangers on board.

    I think The way out of this mess is a Stiffer penalties for kidnappers.
    I pray and earnestly hope for the safe return of the victims to their loved ones (Amen).

    I take a stroll…

  2. So ” busjack or is it busnapping” is the new trend. We heard of the Akure Road incident and now this. Soon bikers will join the bandwagon….and the people we allegedly voted for to represent us in Government are still watching in silence. It is no surprise though because they can afford to hire security men to accompany them wherever they go. God dey!!!

  3. HIJACK CRIME IS BECOMING A TRADITION..AUTHORITIES WILL NOT CURB THIS MADNESS UNTIL IT GETS OUT OF MIND.IF THE GOVT WONT JUMP IN,THEN PROTEST TO BUS COMPANY OWNERS TO PROVIDE PLAIN CLOTH POLICE MEN JUST LIKE LUXURY BUSES DO.EACH BUS MANIFEST SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO STATE POLICE AND DISPATCHED TO BORDER STATES FOR EFFECTIVE TRACKING OF PASSENGERS ESPECIALLY IN DISTRESS TIMES.

  4. We’ve never know how to do things right. Most of our leaders are turning blind eye to most of these crimes because none of their family members is victim. Since white people left in 60’s we cannot even provide adequate security. The only thing we know how to do is stealing and fraud. What do you expect in a nation where your president said stealing is not corruption. I Ihave never seen any useless government like Nigeria government. Other countries will try hard whenever tragic situation like this happen to find permanent solution to this crime but in Nigeria we can only accept this as part of our destiny. We need to be more proactive..
