The head of the Nigerian Police Complaint Response Unit (CRU), Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Yomi Shogunle has told Nigerians that to avoid being killed by Police officers is better not to engage with them in Queens English but pidgin for a proper understanding.
The CRU boss made the statement when he quoted a video of the Head of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad, DCP Tunji Dusu addressing officers about the importance of professionalism on the job.
Nice one 👍.
Lagos State will be calm if police chiefs in #Lagos do more of this.

However, Disu in the video said that officers should be careful about the firearms they carry around.”I am very much concerned about the issue of police killings that have been going on around in the country” he said.
“the matter is so worse that officers should be ashamed of even putting their uniform to go around town”.
“Officers should be careful about the firearms they carry around, as the same arms were purchased for them with the money gotten from the public”.
The Nigerian Police Force have come under severe criticism over spate of killing and harassment of civilians by men attached to the force.
