More than a dozen people were killed, and dozens more were injured. The victims were on their way from Bauchi to Akure, the capital of Ondo. Fearing retaliation, the police have sent additional resources to Plateau to restore law and order.
Like the saying goes, give credit to whom credit is due, we just can't read this without appreciating the Nigerian police and the Federal Road Safety Corps. You never can tell what would have happened if this young man had successfully delivered these arms and ammunition to his gang.
