Nigerian Authority Paid Over N20 Million To Bandits Not To Attack Buhari

The money was paid while President Muhammadu Buhari was planning a trip to Katsina last month.

 It seems like every week, we hear more crazy news out of Africa’s most populated nation, Nigeria. The latest insanity is out of Abuja where the Nigerian Air Force organized ransom payments to armed bandits in exchange for an anti-aircraft gun seized from the Nigerian Army.

The report as sighted on the Wall Street Journal, revealed N20 million was delivered to the bandits in Rugu Forest by a Nigerian Air Force official, who leaked details of the operation under anonymity because the military realized that it would be too risky to leave the weapon in the hands of violent criminals operating in an area the presidential jet would fly over.
