    Following the Kidnap of Damishi Sango former Minister along Jere -Abuja road.I am not surprise that typical of the Nigerian Police they quickly came and made this parade of suspects.This is medicine after the crime is committed.Where was the IGP’s team when Damishi Sango was Kidnapped.They only wake up from their slumber when there is a high profile Kidnap,while many other citizens are kidnapped and nothing is done.The Force PRO should stop this their eye service and become more serious.Now it is difficult to know if the uniform people on the road are law enforcement agent or kidnappers.The police has failed we are left to our fate .
