  1. Nigeria will never change. Common police recruitment, they are still cheating. People who has the criteria are not still taken. That’s why there will still be Boko Haram and Militants. Please you people should bomb these leaders.

  2. There is no need, for recruitment. Police stations leave substance, to pursue shadow. The things, that fellow civilians. Do to other civilians. Are 100 times, more painful. Than anything, that boko haram, armed robbers or suicide bombers. Can do, to civilians. Anytime, civilians report matter, in police station. Police will say; “it is a family matter” OR, “police doesn’t enter, inside universities” etc. The real insurgents, are civilians themselves. And not Boko Haram, armed robbers or kidnappers. Boko Haram, are “actually harmless”
