3 Crimes that will Trend Come 2018 in Nigeria


Crimes are already becoming like a daily routine activity in
Nigeria for the past 2 years as more Nigerians are becoming barbarians with no conscience
at all. Every day, the newspapers and news blogs across the nation carry
different reports of graphic, incessant killings in every nook and cranny of
the country. These annoying incidents leave the average Nigerian with a
question which is “Do we really have law
enforcement agencies in Nigeria?”
by paper and television interactive sessions with security officials and
personnel on AIT, Channels Tv and others, we do.

This year 2017 has been clouded with so much crime that has
broken the hearts of many Nigerians from Fulani herdsmen massacres to the Badoo
cult group in Lagos to the husband stabbing in sleep hours that’s already
making waves across Nigeria right now and others. Today, we here at Gistpark Media bring to you some
of the possible crimes that may trend higher in rate come 2018.

         1. Geo-political zone clashes:

Right now in Nigeria, even a primary school pupil knows that
all the tribes in Nigeria are having one thing or the other against each other
either religiously or politically. These two categories of resentment has
always been the bedrock for so many societal clashes over the years in Nigeria.
In 2017, Nigeria almost suffered a re-enactment of the preamble of the 1967
civil war when some gullible northern youths declared October 1st as
a ‘leave the north’ quick notice day
to all south easterners residing in the north. This madness caused a lot of
problems as it gave IPOB group the
edge to cry out deeper for secession from the Nation. We all have seen how it
claimed some persons’ lives in the east according to reports.

In 2018, if issues of this sort are not handled while
politicians will be busy buying the hearts of gullible Nigerians with their
bags of rice for the sake of 2019 elections, then those food items may be
needed for feeding those families in bushes when different regions will start
clashing with each other which is what the world calls ‘civil war’. God forbid
such anyway.

          2. Cyber Crimes:

Cybercrimes are no news any longer in Nigeria but with the
level of unemployment already in Nigeria, many youths are already designing
smarter patterns of online fraud to employ and extort money from not just
individuals or families anymore but even big organizations globally. This crime
will wreck sales online and more if nothing is done about it from a smart perspective. 

         3. Homicide:

The level of homicide cases reported this year2017 were much
and the approach towards them most of the time may result to more of it in the
coming year. A woman stabs her husband to death and gets just a 7 years jail
term? Are you kidding me? This is an edge for husband stabbing since the cost
to pay is just 7 years (which is roughly 4 years by prison’s day and night
calculations). Isn’t this encouraging more homicide? 2018 may harbor more of
these barbaric acts if a better punishment is not defined for it.
