Why do law-abiding citizens have to suffer on the hands of those who are meant to protect us because they are guiding or protecting “VIPs”?
I had a nasty experience today in Warri, Delta state. I was maintaining my lane after Effurun roundabout towards PTI junction when
I heard a bang and noticed a vehicle rammed into my vehicle from behind and damaged my backlight and left a dent on the vehicle.
I put off my engine and went to meet the driver who had several mobile police
escorting a VIP. They threatened me and immediately zoomed off without even an apology.
I suspected they were heading towards Osubi airstrip and I went there. I found the vehicle and the special force escorting the VIP. I contacted the airport JTF team and explained what happened. He took me to meet the Special Forces who turned around and lied that I hit them while trying to overtake.
Anyone seeing my vehicle and theirs with the scratch sign in place knew this officer, Sergeant Ibrahim (Special Force) was actually lying. We left without achieving anything since he drove off saying the VIP was ready to leave.
My concern is why do law-abiding citizens have to suffer on the hands of those who are meant to protect us because they are guiding or protecting “VIPs”?
Why should my life be endangered by a squad driving recklessly? Why should I spend money I worked hard to earn to repair my vehicle due to the recklessness of a squad?
My heart bleeds because I love Nigeria, abide with the law and my right been trampled upon.
