Journalists, Doctors, Essential Workers Suffer As Police Disregard Exemption by lalasticlala(m): 3:09pm On May 20
Essential workers in Lagos, including doctors and journalists, were, last night, stopped from going about their duties by the Police, in enforcement of the curfew imposed by the Federal Government to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some journalists and health workers were also arrested by policemen, who said they were acting on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu.

Called to prevail on his men to allow journalists passage, the CP said: “Everybody is covered by this curfew. That is the order.”

He said nobody was exempted from the curfew, and dismissed all appeals to allow journalists held by his men to go.

Vanguard gathered that the Police in Lagos might have misread their orders from the Police High Command in Abuja, which gave orders to Lagos Police Command not to exempt anybody from the curfew.

All Vanguard staff, as well as workers of other news media, who left office after work, yesterday, could not get to their homes, as they were held by the security men.

It is also not known how many lives may be endangered, as health workers were also held down, in addition to trucks conveying foodstuffs and petroleum products.

“This is contrary to the assurance given to us by the Presidential Task Force, that workers on essential services were exempted from the curfew.”

Many members of the Nigerian police force are illiterates. They are full of envy

If a Nigerian policeman see a young man doing well, they will be full of envy. They will want to find out about the person. When they hear he is a doctor or Engineer or lawyer, they will be envious. They will want to use any opportunity to show you they still have level

It is situations like this that makes one doubt if there is covid-19 in the country. In other countries where the virus does exist, doctors, nurses, journalists, and other essential workers are given all the assistance they need from the security agencies. They even held trucks carrying foodstuffs. Me I don't even know what is happening again in this country. Night will reach now, they will release scores result. Lagos will top the chart with more than 50% of total new cases.

Naija Police are the worst after the Politicians and Pastors. Nobody should quote me. Just read and move on. My opinion

The police are very irresponsible and rank as one of the agencies of terror in the land. They, more often than not, can't seem to be able to sieve between the rule and the exemption.
