  1. The bandits requested for phones and airtime? Wow! What a country. Had this not clearly shown that our law enforcement agents are deliberately not tracking these guys? Phones with known IMEI numbers are given to these bandits yet our network providers in partnership with our security intelligence cannot track the phones once they begin communicating to the nearest Mast in the areas where they operate? Airtime with known digital signatures are given to these bandits yet the ISP cannot say what phone recharged these cards and the data of the owner of the SIM card traced? Na WA o! But the govt of Buhari can stage a date devil raid all the way to Kenya just to abduct Nnamdi Kanu? It is well
