Terrorists ( Usually sugarcoated as bandits) in Nigeria are currently into business, it is now something like a cartel as seen in Mexican drug movies. They kidnap for money and other times they do trade with some foreigners like Chinese and Arabs. From a close observation of how they operate and how brutal these guys are, you will know they are filled with rage and hate. My question, why are these guys so hateful of Nigerian and why do they get so much immunity and are also highly connected which they always brag about from time to time. We have seen news of choppers dropping them supplies and all other dramtuc stuffs like releasing them without charges amongst others. Here are the three answers I got. 1. Ethnicity or religious belief could be the reason why they are so brutal. If you notice, majority of these bandits are always from a particular tribe that migrated into the country and secondly moste of them are religious extremist. 2. Different politicians could be in charge of different cartels if bandits. I won't mention any name or accuse anyone, but politicians who used so much money during their elections and lost the election might be angry with Nigerians for the rejection and kidnapping and ransom might be a way to get his money Back (remember a while ago a presidential aspirant once boasted of soaking everything with blood if he Looses). If different politicians truly own these cartels, then this might explain why they always brag about been connected. 3. The Government. Well this is the sad truth because the border up north seems porous but down south is tight and secured. How do you explain choppers moving supplies for bandits? How do you explain foreigners doing business with Bandits unchecked? This is a question for the government at all level to answer including the armed forces. Conclusion: Terrorism is a very lucrative business globally, and some humans have sold their souls to the Devil and don't care who dies and who lives, just get the money that's all that matters to them. Even the western world are not left out as they are also happy selling weapons. If big guns in Nigeria are not involved in this business, we would have seen names of sponsors long long ago... Nigerians, your best friend might be the one with the knife stabbing you.
