    This is really bad and unacceptable. Government both state and federal should wake up and protect their citizens. It is unfair that state and federal government should fold their hands and things are getting out of hand. Nigeria’s former head of state once said and I quote “Any crisis, violence or chaos that lasted for more than 24hrs, that government hands is in it”. Government should sit up and defend their people.
