This oloriburuku government has no regard for life! People will work hard abroad and come back to Nigeria to invest their money in business to help develop the economy.....but no security....none, nitch ,nada . You are afraid to even sleep on your bed, walk on the streets, buy the car you will love to drive or have it all with security details. Otherwise, you get kidnapped, killed, maimed, robbed, scammed....list goes on. I will never go back there!! Useless country. They can buy cars for senators, kings, commissioners et al but none can invest in security gadgets, helicopters, drones to reduce these alarming crime rates....useless country!!!!!
