The drone used by the Americans in killing Qasem Soleimani on 3 January 2020 is known as MQ-9 Reaper. It is also known as Predator B.
It is the first hunter-killer Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, UAV designed for long-endurance, high-altitude surveillance.
The human remote controller could sit comfortably in Abuja drinking his chilled lacasera and roasted plantain while sending the drone to strike in far away Sambisa forest.
The Predador B cost $15.9m or 5.56billion naira. It means that the N37 billion criminally planned by some unpatriotic Nigerians to “renovate” the National assembly could buy 7 of such drones.
That could say final bye-bye to Boko haram, kidnappers, armed robbers, bandits, murderous herdsmen or other crime merchants.
Then Nigerians could sleep with two eyes closed and travel at night without fear of molestation!
