People have failed to understand the real truth about all this killings! One fact is illiteracy.
Second fact is abject poverty. Watch these two key words and you could find the reasons behind all this killings. For example; in the Niger Delta region, those called as the militants are the ones who have refused to go to school; reasons because they have oil, so the government needs to settle them, with that hope and mindset school is nothing but a total waste of time to them.
After all they can easily make money by demanding or adopting workers from the oil firm. Literacy joined with the ignorance of kidnapping, will make them to do things without proper considerations. They end up, becoming militants. When you ask them, why they have refused to go to school, they will blame it on the government. This is the exact thing that is equally happening in the North part of the country.
People are always fond of bringing up blames on other people just to use it and justify their weakness into their wicked acts. If government have not provided anything in the society, how did that becomes the handwork of poor people like you? Why then killing the poor people who don't even have a say in the community. The rich government must be enjoying this play. To them, its a mere play.
