VIDEO: A country with 1 TRILLION NAIRA SECURITY BUDGET sent Sergeant Sunday Badang to deactivate bomb with his hands
If you have not seen the gruesome video of how a Nigerian policeman-Sergeant Sunday Badang- of the anti-bomb unit approached an undetonated roadside bomb in Kaduna without caution. You sure then need to view it. We just sent a young man to his early grave.
It is inconceivable that the perimeter was not cleared of ‘SPECTATORS’. The crowd cheered on, as if it is a Spanish game of bull fighting, you won’t be wrong to assume you are in Spain and it is the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona.
Sergeant Badang became the red cloth and Boko-Harram bomb became the bull. We cheered him to his death; he was holding a METAL DETECTOR. What a SICK COUNTRY. A bomb disposal ‘expert’ using a METAL DETECTOR to deactivate a DEADLY IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICE?
With his bare hands Crowd cheering no evacuation of perimeter & he gets blown up into pieces, what happened to the ONE TRILLION NAIRA security budget? Can’t we get a motorised Explosive Ordnance Disposal out of the fat security votes? Our security agents are now more like guinea pigs in Boko-Harrams bomb laboratory.
