|Nigerians- Casual Killers. by darqly(m): 5:20am On Mar 27, 2010|
When I spent a year in Kano,each time i went to the market or mingled with the populace, a sense of dread overcame me.I always looked to see if i could spot someone that had killed his fellow man during one of their regular bloodfests. Even when i visit Jos,my home, i imagine my childhood pals snuffing life out of fellow humans with impunity,without a second thought. This week in The Punch,i read of a girls school in Bauchi that lynched a suspected rapist and dumped the corpse outside the school gate- Secondary school mind you! Its truly shocking how easy it is for us to take a man's life then try to justify it. In many cases, most citizens have participated in one mob action or the other and allowed the primordial instinct in them to be manifest. There's need for urgent redress,else we're headed the way of Somalia or 10,000 Bc! How did it ever get so bad?

Another round of civic education probably,don't know how else. And the authorities have to LAY the law down,hard. You can't go around lynching fellow citizens and escape scotfree.
