To avoid problem, don’t speak Queen’s English to police officers - ACP Abayomi S by Chinekepikin: 3:13pm On Apr 17
Following the recent increase in extrajudicial killings by his colleagues, ACP Abayomi Shogunle has advised Nigerians to henceforth stop speaking Queens English to police officers that accost them on duty.

Abayomi in his post wrote;

"For now, don't go and be speaking Queen's English with them on the road. For proper understanding talk to them in Pidgin, another way to avoid kasala".

Very unreasonable comment.

What has queens English got to do with killing of innocent youths?

I'm seriously questioning the IQ of this guy.

Some people will not listen they will be criticising without proper understanding, I notice that most of those that are killed are not well dressed, or with tattoos or earrings

In sane countries this stupid goat will be fired or forced to resign.

Our official language is English and yet we are not to communicate in the language cos we don't want to get into trouble with the Police if we do.

SHITHOLE country.

Of course, this story will sell as it's been reported.
But for a moment, back off and dare to ask...
"Could this truly be what he said?"

It's a tough thing to do, but once you get to the position of questioning our 21st century news "facts," you'd be surprised to discover how brilliant you've become.

I think he's right, Pidgin English is widely spoken in Naija.

The educated and uneducated have an idea speaking Pidgin English.

Language is one of the entities that causes disunity in any Nation. Pidgin English can be the uniting chord we've been missing.

After all, majority Lagosians speaks Pidgin.

Am I making any sense at all?

Actually, I only use Queen's English to interact with policemen when flagged down. In fact once I get to any legal or illegal checkpoint and they stop me, I greet them and speak in plain English, so they know they are dealing with someone who is educated enough to put them in trouble. They don't give me troubles.

If every car driver speaks pidgin to police, they'll treat all of us like unlearned Danfo drivers, whom they bully Upandan.

I once approached an illegal checkpoint and was flagged down by the policeman, before he could utter a word I said 'Hello officer, I'm an activist and a journalist', the police guy mellowed, and said 'Ah Oga, you can go, Abeg write well oo'. I drove off and bursted into laughter. grin grin

On my way back, the useless police guys don Japa! grin

Stupid fool. Such an annoying statement
Re: To avoid problem, don’t speak Queen’s English to police officers - ACP Abayomi S by tempest01(m): 5:35pm On Apr 17
The worst police force on the face of the earth. How will they be able to read and understand the police laws if they can't speak English?

Why won't there be extra Judiciary killings and kidnap for ransom.

There are lots of intelligent Nigerians that are fit, sound and can speak and understand good English, that are dying to get a job with the police.
But man know man will fill up the police force with illiterates.
