      Why you don't talk about the two Police office who died in the incident . do you think the robber came with just a gun. they came with sophisticated gun with a lot of JUJU, charm to this operation. you shouldn't have lunched the blame on Police officer. they are human just like you. you dont risk your life in a f**king country like Nigeria .

    The Nigerian Police should change their training and embrace the Special Weapon and Tactics,you dont just deploy guys you took to range practice and got to fire 20 rounds to go chase robbers whom carry Automatic weapons.I see Police men everyday and i tell you they dont even have the slightest idea cime is advancing.Some still carry baton all around to fight crime with.hmmmmm
