 “The policemen and the driver of the van took to their heels immediately the hoodlums opened fire on them. The operation lasted for just about seven minutes.

“The speed breaker erected on the highway helped the armed men. They overtook the vans and opened fire on the policemen before they could realise what was going on. The men were better equipped because they operated with confidence.” – an eyewitness told reporters

    Job employment in both Federal and State service is 0. Even the military recruitment youth wasted their last penny on. At last, zero. I remember the last Nigeria Airforce Recruitment, we expect to see result in 2weeks. 2weeks turns 2 months plus. Now saying robbery should reduce. Many seasons film of robbery is still on the way. Nigeria will never be in peace not until all our graduate youth get employed
