  1. These are not ordinary bandits, you don’t want to call a spade a spade but it is. This is Boko Haram no more no less.

  2. Why must we wait for this kind of embarrassment to happen. Its well known that, the airport area up to NDA is a bandit infested area and yet we cannot take proactive measures to stop the miscreants from harming the innocent ones.

  3. We have reported severally to the authorities about the incessant attacks in the area but nothing has been done.. The bandits aimed at our engineers who were at the side for a teem work , luckily about 10 of them escaped and they were able to shot one of our security man in the head and died few minutes later.. I witnessed the incidence.. Muhd

  5. Do you think this is a serious government? You just deceiving yourself if you think so.
    This is a bastard government ever had in Nigeria.
    Emerging, if it Shiates processing legally, they would have been shot and killed by now.
    War unto blood thirsty government.
    May ALLAH TA’ALA save us from the hands of the wicked government ever!

  6. Attacks like this and all previous ones may continue until the government puts effective security checks in and around the circumference of the airport to safeguard lives and property.
    The Air Force Base around the area has its armory there
    NDA has its armory at the academy, the Dallet Barracks, and other military institutions are within proximity yet a cluster of armed bandits do their things and hold innocent citizens for hours unchecked.
    Are those in authority pretending that they don’t know what the bandits want around the airport and NDA?
    Once they get hold of what they want, the rest of Nigeria is…

  7. The funny thing is I just used the same airport and the same airline 3 days ago. It’s such a shame that this happens where you have an airport close NDA and the Air force. Though one can easily see that the security at the airport itself is weak.
    Until we get serious in this country, these kind of things would continue to happen.

  8. Hmmnn we have people like Senator Na-Allah of Brinkle Air, Capt Joji of Skypower Express, Capt Jim of Private Flyers and Alh. Kassie, of Skyjets Air whose base is Karina Airport and others that can speak out, so that government can create measures, till now they were quiet about it, may be till aircraft with passengers are shut

  10. These are signs of boomerang. The do called bandits were brought in to smoke Jonathan out of presidency. Unfortunately, the resistance expected did not hold. Now the government cannot control the excesses of their mecenaries. Let’s continue learning.

  11. You see, to rule is not.easy, Northerners chased Goodluck out of power anf put their own person called Buhari not knowing that he will be worse than Goodluck on every side without comparison. This should be a great lesson to everybody. So in 2023 they should be wise and vote in a good, God fearing and competent person irrespective of the tribe or religion. Shine your eyes now.

  13. I can’t imagine when you come up with a strategy to defeat the enemy,then, you go on air to an announced it that these are your plans, and expect the enemy to sit there waiting for to come and defeat them.this is an indirect sign of informing them to take cover.who is fooling who. this one na story to the chicks. Only God will save us, because the government is not ready to do the right thing because of selfish reasons.

  14. This is really bad,the government need to empower the vigilante group to bring down this so called bandit.
