Unhappy

Whilst it's great news that the 7 Eket hostages were released, please spare a thought for the 2 unarmed security guards who were killed during the kidnapping. I know that many security guards in Nigeria are pretty poor, but they're also poorly paid. The point is though, that they're also human beings who were just there doing their job. Maybe they had families to support, but I doubt that their families will have received much in the way of support, either financial or emotional. Does anyone in Eket know if any action is being taken to ascertain if the families of the guards need any help too?
