The Story Of Unknown Gunmen And Their Attacks On The Nigeria Police

 The Story Of Unknown Gunmen And Their Attacks On The Nigeria Police



It has become re-ocurring news on how unknown gunmen attack policemen in their stations and on traffic checkpoints. It all started since last year 2020 after the #ENDSARS protest which the Nigerian youths took to the streets to register their displeasure on the reckless killings, harassments and intimidations of the Nigerian Police.

But the Nigerian government led by President Muhammadu Buhari in it's usual way of doing things, recklessly mishandled the whole situation by sending unprofessional Nigeria soilders to go and shoot live bullets on peaceful protesters who were just waving Nigeria flags and singing the National Anthem. Since then the story of unknown gunmen has become  regular trending news.

It is so bad that many police officers do not wear their uniforms again. Most of the police stations are being burnt down, with the officers themselves, put on the run. But if we should look at it very well, it is ideal to say that these people are known gunmen whom the Nigerian politicians know too well. Is it not the politicians that buy guns to unemployed youths during elections and promise them heaven on earth? After the elections, these men will be left to perish on the streets. The politicians are the ones training and sponsoring all these unknown gunmen. 

These men are the tools the politicians use to rig elections and intimidate their opponents to submission and after elections, the guns are left in the hands of these touts, which they use to terrorize the poor populace. Quite disturbing about this trend is that these politicians surround themselves with soilders that make it impossible for the so-called unknown gunmen to get at them. But as it is said, "when two elephants fight, it is the grasses that suffer the consequences" Now the policemen are suffering it.

Secondly; showing how unprofessional the Nigeria Police is, officers do not reason or have human feelings for their fellow beings. Just because of the little peanut they gain from these unpatriotic politicians, they become enemies to themselves. These politicians will send them to go and kill, harass and intimidate people; they will sheepishly go and start shooting live bullets at innocent civilians. These things that are happening are enough evidences that Nigerians are fed up with the brutality of Nigeria police, gone are the days when policemen were friends. Today, the Nigerian Police has become the worst enemy of the people. It is now clear that guns, intimidation or harassment do not give peace but instead, are evidences that the people can no longer be cowed to accept what they do not want. The Nigerian government ruled by the Fulani jawjaweed should swallow its pride and do the needful before it becomes too late.
