    Comment…My own suggestion here is about handling weapon when deployed at check point and matter what you not support to react when the person you are checking did not disobey them and your duty is to check mate they bad guys. Is unfortunate our NPF most of the time killing drivers because of twenty naira, fifty naira and one hundred naira mostly, is not because weapon handling what in their mine is different i want to become and de same problems that happen today is still happen tomorrow all over and someone will still come out they are not well trained that’s why the person that do this is not corporate or sergeant, inspector for that matter isn’t small person in the system. Therefore am calling the high authority to take proper action against any body who miss led himself.
