Thank God the girl escaped from her abductors. However law enforcers in Nigeria need to start acting like law enforcers. They should start doing their duties diligently and not give criminals they “DO NOT” want to apprehend code words for them to escape, then claim later they cannot find them. What do they mean by “efforts are being made to arrest the suspect”. as in this case or, to paraphrase in the case of Deborah (the lady murdered on public) in which law enforcers are reporting that one or more of the murderers was/were foreigners and might be out of the country. Their job is to bring the criminal(s) to justice. The laws of a country are toothless if the law enforcement are incapacitated by partiality, highest bidder syndrome and/or societal influence. LET’S MAKE NIGERIA A COUNTRY OF LAW AND ORDER. It starts with impartial but humane law enforcement.
