    see commissioner Dan Mallam…herds men is now in all geo political zone ,they have found succour in kidnapping to the young educator.Though its not safe in the day light,let us curtail night bus trips.i recall most have armed escort but the terrorists may operate in large numbers and with sophisticated weapons..state police is the key to fish out aliens and flush them out.

      He was driving with his sister from Benin to Okada on Saturday afternoon when Fulani armed bandits all of a sudden appeared from the bush and started firing at his car. The tyre got burst and bullet hit his head. No police presence, no police intervention.

      The state police is so unreliable, first Kelvin was never on a bus trip. Secondly this happened between the hours of 15:00 and 16:00. The poor boy was on his way from the auto mechanic workshop in Benin city driving in his car with his sister which was riddled with bullets. They we’re just only the two of them. No one else was kidnapped. What has the commissioner of police said??? They shot him on motion and the car riddled with bullets. But luckily my sister wasn’t hit. And the stupid commissioner is saying jargons. They we’re about taking away my sister but the other gang member shouted at him to leave her alone. May because the had realised that they shot him. And he was alone he needed help they told her to run away. No one was kidnapped and no one was rescued.

    The reason why we have not been triumph in combatting crime is because we continue using old tactics for new crime. The indigenous guys know how to muddle their way to effective solutions.

    The commissioner of police is a bloody liar, what the hell has he said. First the incident never happened in the night. It happened in broad day light and the bastard is saying he tried to escape. Someone who was peacefully driving his car, and was shot on motion. He said he tried to escape. Bloody bastard liars. I’m the brother.
