By now, we must have all gotten tired of receiving news on frequent attacks and abductions. The security situation of Nigeria keeps getting worse by the day. For the northerners, it's the Boko Haram insurgence, and the East are currently battling unknown Gunmen.
In a recent video, the minister of defense , Major General Bashir Magashi (rtd), was captured carrying a weapon as he enters into his car.
However, what has caught attention was the fact that the minister was seen carrying a rifle while he entered his car.
Though it sounds quite Hilarious, it says a lot about the state of security in the country as it stands now.
Imagine a minister of defence arming himself with a rifle, as he plans to go out, just because he doesn't know what might await him on the road, what then becomes of an ordinary civilian.
As a Nigerian, it's safer to always arm yourself with whatever may serve as a weapon when you plan to go on a long road trip, because you don't know if these dreaded killers awaits you. It takes the grace of God to travel interstate in Nigeria, without encountering these People.
