Only those who haven't robbed before, and want to virtue-signal how empathetic they are towards the poor, say armed robbery is always down to "hunger".

Was once friends with a reformed armed-robber and former gang-leader. This is what he told me of his experience. #LagosUnrest
First of all, this guy wasn't poor by any standards. Had several siblings in West who used to send him money regularly. He got into crime through the confraternity he joined while in a SE University. He became "defence minister" of his confra, in charge of ammunition et al.
He started robbing because he had access to weapons to do it, boys at his disposal and there was little danger of getting caught. Worst-case scenario, police stop you on way back from operation, you settle them, simple. They always took the bribe, he said.

#Covid19, among other things, has come to expose the underbelly of the dysfunctional country/society we have run for years.

The time has come to consciously begin to question the basis/foundation of our existential realities.
First, it was #NigerDeltaUnrest. Then came the lingering #BokoHaram insurgency.The #2016Recession, occasioned by the dip in global oil prices, also came. Now, the #Covid_19 pandemic has come to expose the unsustainability of the model of our political-economy.
