The Lagos-Ibadan Nightmare by Ugoji Egbujo

The Lagos Ibadan corridor is infested with bandits. The menace is growing. In the last week, three or more brazen attacks have occurred. Gunmen jumped out of the bush, attacked and abducted hapless citizens. Mothers and children were among those seized in daylight. That was how the Abuja-Kaduna cancer started. Like a joke. And before the federal government rose from slumber, our travelling soldiers had started avoiding the route. A tale of confounding impotence. The link between the nation’s political and military capital was seized by rogues. And heaven didn’t fall.
