The Nigerian Police Force

6

I am not a good writer, but I want to try and say my opinion about the current system of the Nigerian police. The Nigerian police are meant to protect lives and promote justice. They are supposed to be the saviour of it's citizen,who pay them and provide basic necessity for their wellbeing. In an ideal case the police is meant to be neutral and educate it's subject (citizen) of their fundamental rights. The Nigerian police should be the best friend to every and anybody with out a show of religious fanatism or tribalism. The Nigerian police should protect,should correct and improve lives. This and many more should be the responsibility of the Nigerian police. But in our today world and system of governance, the Nigerian police is worst than the bandits on the road, they are so biased and would not carry out proper investigation, they use the authority given to them by the citizen to wicked it's citizens. They obstruct justice. The only language that works for them now is money. You don't have money they are not going to listen to you. 60 percent of the people locked up in detention today is because of this wickedness and high level for the love of money. It is a sad truth today that going to the police station to lay complaint will cost you money. In as much as you can pay them the you are the innocent person. I once heard a police officer telling a suspect that the complainant is right and he is the suspect and should not bite more than what he can chew if not they will detain him. The Nigerian police has gone to the stage of forcing people to write statement on offence they did not commit this I have seen. The worst part is the Nigerian police is extorting it's citizen and ensuring they become poor. They don't consider your level of finances they threaten you with detention. This is not to say that some people are not guilty of what they have been charge for or some people are not liars, we have this set of people and even the police know them when they see them. It is true ignorance of the Nigerian constitution and laws are responsible for an average Nigerian, but it is a sad truth today that regardless of your knowledge of this things,your money must speak for you. You need money (wonder what will be the fate of the poor masses). You want to talk about justice you first talk about money, is it the lawyer you want to take? Even the lawyers come in levels and your money will get you the best. The Nigerian system is bad entirely and needs to be revisited. Exploitation and injustice from the Nigerian police at large is unbearable. Kindly share any experience you have with the Nigerian police in the comment section below
