  1. SARS was established to operate only in the South so is EFCC. Daily we see youths mainly from the South arrested and paraded as internet fraudsters. It has become a Southern thing. But the insurgency which evidently is a northern business is aided by the federal government. Helicopters drop foods and weapons for them. Government negotiate with them . Pay huge sums of money to them. When arrested the government rehabilitates and establishes them by either recruiting them into the Nigerian security agencies or send them abroad. Something MUST happen soon .
