    Is the situation so bad that foreigners must have security escorts. I’ve changed my mind, no longer interested in getting my own share of the black gold. I rather relocate to the South West, for cocoa.

    “The expatriates, who were in company of Nigerian guides, were in the area to inspect a dilapidated hospital with a view to offering assistance.” …. and that is the type of people to be abducted? In other words are we to conclude now that foreigners are personal non grata in the South -south? When will this self-centered craving for wealth to the point of self destruction end! When will any community with a culture like this ever make progress?
