What Can We (nigerians) Do To Stop Armed Robberies?

The boldness of Armed Robbers in Nigeria is pure nightmare!  It is very shameful to think that our great Nigerian Army can not be used to combat these lazy idiots called armed robbers.  I know first hand how great our Armed Forces performed in Liberia, Sierra-Leaone and now in Sudan.  We have the most disciplined and fearless Soldiers in the world (this is no bragging).  Majority of the United Nations' Armed forces' Trainers based in New York are Nigerians.  The leader of the United Nations Armed forces in Sudan is a Nigerian.  Why can't we use our Armed Forces to combat these Armed Robbers instead of using our poorly trained and armed Police Officers.  I was once stopped by a Police officer in Lagos who demanded that I open my camera so that he will see the pictures that I took of him.  I tried to explain to him that if I open the camera, all the pictures that I took will be damaged.  I was very shocked of such ignorance. 

Fellow great Nigerians, what can we do to stop these Armed Robbers??

Nothing much. When most of the "names in high places" rose to power by mounting "road blocks"? Please, ask another question.

Armed robbery is here to stay.

First of all, never underestimate a desperate man; in this case someone who has not eaten in 2 days.

We should first of all tackle the problem that causes armed robbery in the first place like the incredibly pathetic public school system we have.

Provide free education for all Nigerians, no country can be fully productive if a significant part of its population is uneducated. In yanki and most developed countries there is free education until the university level

Invest heavily in Agriculture and transportation to facilitate the rural economy this would make the rural areas develop and create lots of job opportunities, so that all this kids would not be migrating to the urban areas and ending up in the Mushin's or Ajegunle's and become either prostitutes or armed robbers.

Fix NEPA, if this happens every other thing would fall into place like industrialization creating more jobs for Nigerians.

So my fellow Nigerians let's not forget that in the real world just as statistics have shown us around the world, punishment never deters crime and that prevention is better than cure.

The armed robbers are really blazen in their actions?

They are all just lazy cowards who are either too lazy or too silly to work a job like many pople here in Nigeria.

There should be real consequences for thesse bastards. public excecutions of all armed robbers. to serve as an example.

while zero tolerance for armed robbery should be advocated, we should all also examine ourselves and stop our attitudes of being robbers-in-waiting.

Most of us are robbers in waiting. We just dont have the opportunity to rob yet: maybe not with arms but in different ways

Publicly lynch them, set the sonofabitches on fire, if they're caught.

Saves the State the expense of a trial, and the armed robber's are less likely to get off on some legal technicality.

That's my view, others may have different opinions.
