The rate of stealing, kidnapping, bribing, ritual killings, robbing and duping in Nigeria is quite on the high side recently.

Both Federal and state government have shown concern over the insecurity and safety of their citizens and followers and have moved aggressively into action by deploying more security personnels and armed operatives to different areas in Nigeria were there are security insufficiency.

The efforts from State and Federal Government has massively helped in combating and fighting criminal activities in Nigeria but however, this efforts seems not to be enough for the total vanquishing, annihilation and eradication of hoodlums and their evil activities in Nigeria as this criminals keep operating secretly and terrorizing the citizens of our Country as seen in the case below.
