The Newcastle FC Footballer, Obafemi Martins, was taking a drive around Lagos after coming to play for the National Team when he stopped to get some petrol at a filling station. A car drove up to his and gun shots were fired at his vehicle. He escaped injury but another person in his car was injured. (Picture shows the windscreen of his car)
Martins has since returned to his base in England and in interviews granted to the British Press, the visibly shaken player said he wouldn't be returning to Nigeria in the near future.
There are tens of millions trapped in the mess here caused by bad governance who have no escape routes. Who will speak for these people?
