Desperate times call for desperate measures. The condition in our country Nigeria today has hitherto made some people decide to take laws into their hands and form a resistance against the Government.
Yesterday, we all heard about the attack on the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) in Imo State. This attack was reported to have led to the unauthorized freedom of over 1,800 inmates of the prison.
The attack affected so many buildings in the compound. It was also reported that cars packed in the compound were also set ablaze. The President of the country also reacted to this from London saying that this was an act of terrorism.
He urged the appropriate office to see to the apprehension of the assailants. He also urged them to re-capture the inmates who escaped.
Meanwhile, the Rivers State Police Command has shown no signs of fear with regards to the attack in Imo state. They have reassured the citizens of the state that there will be maximum security in the state, there are no chances of an attack occurring.
This statement was made by DSP Nnamdi Omoni (the Spokesman of the Command). He said that there is no need to raise an alarm adding that they are prepared to repel any such attack.
What do you think about this? Is this the latent start of a civil war?
Let us hear from you.
