Insecurity in Naija – A quick snapshot of what’s going on and where its happening

Insecurity now exists at every corner of the country,  especially in the north of Nigeria, they come with different names but their Modus Operandi is basically the same


A new security threat has emerged in the north – they boldly burn down homes, kill people across Northern States of Zamfara, Kastina, Niger and Kaduna.

As usual with every underworld group in Nigeria, they bring the government to their Knees forcing them to negotiate- money and ransome change hands- the bandits in turn  buy bigger and better equipment and stage a bigger attack.

In the Images below, the bandits are pictured negotiating with governmental and security agencies.
