Trying to imagine the number of kidnappers that will effectively kidnap and man 90 passengers should get any rational mind scared.

We are truly doomed.

That aside, it will be very unfair if these kidnappers do not settle these drivers that bring businesses for them.

I can only imagine how disgruntled some of these drivers would feel.
Imagine making 3million off one passenger in an 18-seater bus and then the driver does not get a percentage.
The story is not true, it didn't happen

Good submission. But as long as election result depend on who has more followership, then anyone can become the president. Until we start to add more qualifications, qualities, etc. We will continue to have unqualified men in power.
AllahIsShit:
I agree that PDP doesn't have the solution to Nigeria's problems simply because PDP and APC are two sides of the same coin, but there were about 20 other candidates in that election. Many of them were of a much higher intellectual calibre than Buhari or Atiku. Why couldn't you have voted for one of them?

The Fulani herdsmen Buhari imported from neighboring African countries prior to 2015 presidential election are really causing havoc to Nigeria and Nigerians, but the mannequin in Aso Villa is not bordered at all, his concern is IPOB and MNK.

A family friend's pregnant wife was kidnapped last month when they were returning from Abuja by gun wielding herdsmen, husband escaped and the man paid 3million naira for the release of his wife.

The saddest part of it is that the woman lost the pregnancy after her release, imagine losing 3m in this harsh economy and your unborn child also.

It will never be well for whoever that still support this administration and those that voted them in the second time..AMEN!

I already unfriend 1 accursed individual who has sworn that nothing can made him withdraw his support for demonic Buhari. This is someone that we're most likely going to be to 3 days out of 7 but we've not seen in over 4 months now.

The driver of this luxury bus spoke with Efe of Man Around Town this morning. The driver said that no one was kidnapped, but everybody was robbed of their belongings and were later set free.

This is good news if no one was kidnapped.

I wonder how some people came about the information that only 2 people escaped out of the over 100.

Whenever robbers, bandits or kidnappers are on the road at night,

the drivers sometimes know because as they are driving,if they notice that no vehicle is passing again,

they will stop driving until they start seeing other vehicles passing.


Most luxurious bus drivers know the bad spots on the way.




They know the spots that evil people are most likely to be.


Although sometimes, some drivers miscalculate and run into trouble.


What makes the story seems untrue is that the highest number a luxurious bus can carry for normal passengers is 59 because most luxurious buses are 59 seaters.

The attachment cannot exceed 20 people.

Technically, I still think night travel with the so-called luxurious buses is safer than daytime travel with the regular mini buses or private vehicles.

With the high number of passengers on the long buses, and with the advantage of cover of darkness, it is somewhat easier for passengers to scatter in different directions in the event of being attacked by these Fulani animals. How easy can it be to shepherd 90 people, many of them rugged ogbologbo hustlers (because no be aje butter dey travel night journey) into the bush on an hours long trek?

So that's it. Highway kidnappings happen daily in broad day light, targeting these mini buses, siennas and regular sedans - with very little chances of escape for the unfortunate passengers. So I'd say if you can't afford flights then it is still better to go with these luxurious buses at night than the regular God is Good 14 seater buses and the likes.

You are making sense here.

Anytime I traveled from Aba to Kano in a luxurious night bus, I always prefer the window seat.

If I hear/sense anything threatening, I am always more than willing to escape into the bush.


I cannot let myself to be kidnapped.


It is always fun.


It is risky but it is fun.



Traveling during the day is not safer than the night as most people assume.


Under the cover of darkness, one can easily escape into the bush.


Sometimes, something suddenly comes up which requires us to travel and we cannot take flight, because there is no flight at that moment, etc, so we opt for night bus, where the roads are not congested as during the day,



and where you will not feel the full weight of the travel, because at some point during travel, you will sleep,thereby reducing the stress.


You are most likely to reduce the stress of the travel through sleep, because sleep invigorates and renews someone.


Although I prefer flight to all forms of travel.

Everyday,night buses are carrying people across Nigeria and nothing evil happens in most of the travel.

It is only when evil happens on few occassions that people will start putting fear in people on the evil of traveling in nigeria.


But they forget that majority of people traveled and reached their destination in peace.


There is no human activity that does not have some measure of risk.

But that does not mean we should not do anything again because of the risk.


I read a book by one former governor who was once a Biafran soldier fighting during the civil war.

He said his friend resigned from the army to avoid being killed,but ended up being killed at home.


So even if someone decides to stay permanently inside his/her house to avoid death/problem,he or she can still die by house collapse,fire incident or a bullet can pierce the house and killed him or her.



Also,the number of accidents,kidnapping and robbery of travellers are higher in the day than in the night,

so day traveling is not safer than night traveling.


Staying at home to avoid death/problem is not safer than traveling/going out.

We should not allow anyone/anything to threaten us.

The size of a battalion at least.

Those are foot soldiers in the Fula army. Norther Nigeria is at war already, ditto the south east.
