the Govt must #EndSarsNow. But we can’t stop at the ban, because the same bad officers will still be in the Police force and just continue the behaviour. #EndSARS but also commit that any officer involved in extortion or brutality is immediately suspended, investigated & charged.
The 6 non-negotiables Nigeria Gov
2) Officers caught extorting/assaulting citizens must be suspended, investigated & prosecuted
3) Police must pay hefty damages to the families of any victims of brutality out of their budget
4) Officers must wear uniforms
5) Profiling and harassing young people because of their hairstyles, outfits, phones, cars etc must seize.. Arrests must be due to Investigations and Warrants, not personal prejudice.
6) Peaceful Protesting is the legal right of every Nigerian Citizen.
Police must also be held liable for damages in proven cases. They must pay hefty damages to the families of their victims… directly out of their yearly budget!! When they hurt us, it must hurt their pockets. I’ve lost count of how many times we have to raise money for victims
Mr President, this is the reform effort we want:
– Any officer involved caught in Extorting/assaulting citizens is immediately suspended without pay, investigated and charged
– Police must be held liable to pay damages for their conduct in proven cases
