Oke Umurhohwo: Have The Police Turned Against Nigerians? by AnonPoet: 6:10pm On Oct 15
Jimoh Isiaq was a young Nigerian, and like almost every other person, have a dream. But he's no more. He fell to a bullet from a policeman, and just like that he is no more. The painful thing about his sad loss was that he died in the hands of people who are supposed to keep him safe from harm.

Isiaq's pathetic story is the reality of most young Nigerians. They are under a fierce attack from the Nigerian police. Let me point out that Isiaq was shot when many young Nigerians took to the streets to protest police brutality. According to news reports, he was a bystander and the impunity which many Nigerians are pushing against fell him and took him away from his loved ones.

That video would most certainly throw anyone in a disturbing mood, except for callous minds, who will watch the reaction of Isiaq's father and not be enraged. That electrified the campaign and many youths, who had hitherto show little or no interest in the demand to end police brutality, joined the push so as not to experience the unbearable pain of losing their loved ones to police brutality. But what did peaceful protesters got? More bullets and more deaths in the hands of police. Men of the Nigerian police are recklessly shooting at armless citizens, who are exercising their rights of peaceful protest, causing the deaths of people they are being paid to keep safe.

When the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Muhammed Abubakar, announced the dissolution of SARS on Sunday, Nigerians thought their nightmares were over. But it turned out to be the usual words with no action as policemen were on rampant in Ogbomosho, wielding lethal force on protesters and left at least three persons dead. Some accounts quoted a larger figure of casualties as a result of the brute force of policemen. Images from that incident were so horrible and disgusting as one of the videos that circulated on the internet showed security agents dragging dead bodies on the floor and point to a disturbing but salient truth–Police have declared war on Nigerians. This is too obvious for any discerning Nigerians not to have realized. We're under attack and our attacker are the same people who swore an allegiance to keep us safe

The events of the last five days are not enough to convince you, look at the unnecessary tragedy that was thrown up in Surulere on Monday. Protesters, as usual, tried to sustain their campaign for reformed police but what they got were bullets flying in every direction. This caused commotion and many Nigerians were not lucky.

This is sad and shows the frightening situation that Nigerians are facing in their country. Up North, Boko Haram, and bandits are the terror shutting down lives and forcing people to flee their homes, but here in the south, it is the police, and that is most unfortunate. This is not something that should continue and everyone must join in the clamour to #EndPoliceBrutality so that we can be safe. Just like Isiaq, some of our compatriots have paid the ultimate price with their lives and we must not fail them and let their deaths be in vain. We owe it ourselves too so that our children will no longer need to pour into the streets like we are doing now to trend #ReformNigerianPolice.

I'm afraid the youths are losing focus on the protest / struggle.

The protest has only been heading with great magnitude no direction.

We currently have the momentum and leverage to request for so many things from our hitherto unconcerned government.

Let's make judicious use of this opportunity Biko!

Be of good courage @OP and every well wishers of Naija, victory is around the corner. The world is watching, the govt can't do nothing except kill us, and we really are not scared of death at this stage, we've been pushed to the wall for far too long. This is prove those motherfuckers never loved us. See as the army busy dey plan formation to attack protesters because the whole south is about to unite and we know deep down that threat from the army is for ipobs, even if the cause is genuine this time. Unless government we have.

Police and the other armed forces of Nigeria are instruments of the Buhari cabal for Fulanization and Islamization of entire Nigeria.

Any state gov who tells the commissioner of police to use force on the protesters, is calling for a bigger and more energized protest. When these protests become bigger, some governors will resign and flee to neighboring countries.

The only difference between a Nigerian policeman and a criminal is the uniform they wear.

Check out any bad joint where they smoke, steal and carry prostitutes, you'll always find policemen there.

Last week I saw a video on Facebook of some SARS personal shouting Aye A×e men and shooting into the air.

They're criminals, only a few have sane minds. The rest are just murderers, rapists, thevies...etc

cry
The truth of the matter is that, nobody controls this bastards, they operate on their own.
Why was a particular governor crying that state governors are just figure head in police affairs of his state.

A lot needs to be changed in this country.
#Restructuring
#overhauling
Let's birth a new Nigeria.
I've given up on this country, but with the recent movement, I see a new Nigeria soon.
