The Plight of a common Nigerian
But it is a very different story as you get to the terrains of the Niger Delta and across the Niger.
The new babaric law that states that a building will be demloished if a kidnapper is seen habouring in it.
Mr Ogbeni a retired SPDC worker who used his retirement gratuity to set up a hospitality busines in the education corridor of Delta state university Abraka was dealt a terrible blow as he has now realised that the government is not for the common man like himself . A man who has toiled for over 37 years and retired to a business to keep body and soul together.
Mr Ogbeni recounted that the kidnapper lodged in his hotel for a week on the pretence that he was shooting a movie in the axis and he also filled a form which is always given to guest to fill in their datas . There was no sign of anything funny. the lodger checked out of the hotel only to be brought by the police to be identified by the manager if he was a guest at his hotel which the manager affirmed . he was then taken alongside the lodger to the police station for a statement and he was detained alongsidse the suspected kidnapper. and that same evening the hotel was brought to the ground by the task force without even informing the owner of the property nor seeking a court injuction. where is the justice in our land? what lies ahead for the common man?
