Couple Killed By Robbers Shortly After Landing Nigeria For Holiday by klem93(m): 5:09am On Dec 21, 2014
A couple based in Texas, USA, Mr and Mrs Don and Nkem Okoro who were in Nigeria for vacation and to attend a burial of a relation, have been killed by unknown armed robbers who tried to rob them along Benin-Onitsha high way on their way to the village to attend a burial. Their two-year old niece was also in the car with them, and sadly, they were all killed. Another report also says, they were trying to run from the robbery attack which made them have a ghastly accident in which they all died.

The Nigerian community in Houston who are grieving however says their death was regrettable and it was something that could have been preventable if only the country was security conscious. They are survived by five children.

Always submit to them assuming you are cornered. Obedience to them will to a large extent keep you safe.

Always avoid making eye contacts with them because they feel you may recognize them later and may shoot to be sure you don't reveal what you see.

Keep your mouth shut too.

These are some of security tips.

Your life is worth more than your possession.

Think safe, stay safe.

Hope these devils don't get away with this.

RIP to the dead.

[b]Hmmm!!!!


What a country and our President will keep making empty promises on Security issue.

In 2011 he make so many promises On Security, which is the primary purpose of governance, the promises were not only unfulfilled, the situation got worse.
Mr. President promised that if anyone caught breaching the
public peace to face the full wrath of the law. He promised to make sure that no part of the country is allowed to be a
sanctuary for criminals anymore, yet Sambisa is a den of
terrorists. He promised to confront headlong ethno-religious violence in the country, pursue all bombers and bring a complete end to insurgency. However, as I write insurgency is still thriving in the Northeast with territories being taken, students being maimed, abducted and citizens displaced in their own country. The notorious Shekau has cheated death several times despite claims to have been killed by security operatives and oh, he even addresses the nation more than the President! To even make matters worse, a close ally of the President threatened fire and brimstone should the President go ahead with the groundbreaking takeoff of a proposed gas project in Ugborodo. Consequently, the President had to cancel the ceremony with the excuse of allowing warring factions settle. The failure of the security operatives to arrest and prosecute the individual further embodied him to abduct journalists, torture them mercilessly before releasing them for having the effrontery to cover the events happening in Ugborodo. Yet, nothing has been done to punish the said individual and kidnapping have become a day-to-day occurrence where so many lives has been wasted and now innocent couples are been killed just to show how insecure Nigeria is.
