This morning before 7:00 am, I was among d lucky chaps that secured a ticket to travel from Kubwa/Abuja to Kaduna by train. A few minutes after d train moved from Kubwa Station, I noticed that Helicopters were hovering close to our train & flying towards d Forrest surrounding us

When I saw abt 2 of d Helicopters not more 5minutes later, my thinking was dt d Nigerian security agency have reacted to d kidnappings on d Abuja highway & are combing d Forrest for d marauders. l momentarily felt happy dt at last, something gd was bn done abt d security situatn

My happiness was busted when one of d Nigerian Railways Corporation staff checkn our tickets informed us that d Corporation hired d 3 Helicopters on a private deal to guard us to Kaduna. I was further convinced by his explanation when I did not see d inscription of the Police on any of d Helicopters. That ws how 3 Helicopters hovered over us this mornn until we reached Rigasa.

The hypocrisy of d Nigerian elites toward us became more obvious when whn we were deboarding,I saw 2 Senators & other high ranking officers among d passengers dt just came down hung my head in shame as I assessed the situation. So the elites can do anything possible to protect themselves but leave others unprotected. How many of those Helicopters are on the roads where the kidnappings are taking place?

How many helpless passengers will be passing the road today with only prayers as their protection? This is typical of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” where some animals are more equal than others.
