Stop the sav­agery of killing on high­ways

Weekly Trust - - Weekend Views - Mustapha Umar, Jos

The sav­age habit of block­ing high­ways and bru­tally killing in­no­cent trav­ellers is be­com­ing a very dis­turb­ing trend in Nige­rian con­flicts. Many in­no­cent peo­ple have been hacked to death with­out even the chance of get­ting good burial as a re­sult of the ac­tions of blood-thirsty cal­lous peo­ple who trans­fer their ag­gres­sion and frus­tra­tion on trav­ellers dur­ing con­flicts. This is even as such trav­ellers are com­pletely ig­no­rant and in­no­cent of the con­flicts, and only merely run into sav­age killer gangs on the roads. It is ap­par­ent that peo­ple no longer re­gard hu­man life as any­thing but I wish to re­mind such peo­ple that though gov­ern­ment may be han­dling such atroc­i­ties with in­com­pe­tence, God will not be in­com­pe­tent on judg­ment day.
