It is their job and it is part of their training to handle differnet situations with the least possible casualties.
Nigeria is not the only country where crime is perpetrated. See how it is done elsewhere and act in everyone's best interest.

How is he a public enemy. So it is ok for animals to about looting properties, blocking roads and robbing people?

Some people actually deserve to die as they are nothing but problems to the society. The govt has imposed a curfew and advised people to stay at home, but some animals think it is an opportunity for them to steal, loot, rape and cause havoc.

Anybody seen doing any useless protest , blocking roads, looting, should be shot dead. The NA should ensure not to spare any of them. Enough is enough of these nonsense. Some useless parents see their children blocking roads and collecting money from passers by and they won't call them to order. But when the police come to shoot these bas.tard children, they begin to make videos and cry that the govt is killing their children.
Your education is a total waste. People like you just go through school, but school didn't go through you. Even if someone is a criminal, and committed crime worthy of execution, he must still be made to face trial in court, he must go through the due process of the law. Are the laws for decoration? Is the judiciary for decoration? Are the judges and Courts for decoration? Are we in a lawless society run by vigilante executioners?

A police man is an enforcer of the law, he is not an executioner. His primary job is to arrest an offender, not to kill. SEPARATION OF POWERS is what Modern Civilization is about. We have other people with other roles and functions by the Constitution and laws of the land. We have prosecutors, we have Courts etc. The police job is to arrest and hand over to their prosecutor to prosecute in Court, where you have witnesses, you have jury, you have the Judge and the case is on trial.

If proven guilty and worthy of capital punishment, it is the duty of the Judge +/- the jury to determine that. And that's the role of the Judge, even the judge cannot be the executioner. Separation of powers. You cannot be a enforcer, arrester, prosecutor, witness, jury, judge and executioner all-in-one by yourself. That is a GROSS ABUSE OF POWER. Nobody should have that kind of absolute power to himself, because, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely". Stop supporting barbaric acts of cold-blooded murder.

Jesus was accused of Blasphemy, a religious crime that they wanted to kill him for by jungle justice, but the Roman government were civilized enough to know every criminal deserves trial, even if just to follow due process. The Romans of about 3,000 years ago are more civilized than you. Shame!

Why attack banks and private properties? Inflicting more pains on your fellow struggling and pained nigerian isn't the way to go. Even freeing hardened unrepentant criminals.......Go after the government personal properties instead. They brought this evil upon us. Abuja should be the target, asorock and national assembly and restructuring will take place.

I have Been a strong and devoted advocate of the Protest.

but on this, GOD BLESS THE MOPOL WHO DID A GOOD JOB

these Hoodlums where the ones that allowed themselves to be used as weapons to disrupt the whole Protest.


THEY CALL THEMSELVES THUGS BUT THEY ARE NOTHING BUT, BUNCH OF FOOLISH WEAKLINGS.

THEIR MATES ARE RAIDING WAREHOUSES AND PALACE WHERE OUR COVID-19 PALLIATIVES WERE STOCKED THEY ARE RAIDING AND LOOTING INNOCENT PEOPLE.

YOU ACCUSE TINUBU AMD CO. FOR CAUSING THE TROUBLE. HAVE U FINISHED DEALING WITH THE TINUBU AND CO? YOU ARE DESTROYING AND LOOTING INNOCENT PEOPLE'S PROPERTIES.

U CATCH ANYONE LOOTING STORES, BANKS, BREAKING INTO PRISONS TO FREE INMATES.

PLEASE GUN THEM DOWN
A HEADSHOT WOULD BE PREFERABLE.

You are too dull to be a productive citizen. Instead of calling for calm you are asking for an escalation of the violence. Didn't you read that a police informant was lynched. Don't you consider that these policemen are citizens too and live in local communities. Don't you consider that they and their families can become targets for violence off the job or will they be on patrol forever.

There are levels of incidents and peculiar scenarios that call for reason. Looting is not a capital offence and under no circumstance should people be shot for that except if the police protecting such premises come under armed attack. I'm afraid the causative and lessons of the past few weeks are lost on the authorities and folks like you but like we always say, Nigerians don't learn in classrooms with the brain but in hospitals with the pain.

Citizens outnumber the police almost 1000 to 1. That is not a position of strength by any estimate. It calls for cerebral action not stupid brutality. This situation is about to get very dark, ugly and can easily go underground in just the same way the misadventures of the Katsina police a decade ago plunged Nigeria into a crises engulfing the whole north east, costing trillions of naira and thousands of life.

The police never learns.

Anyhow you want to reason it unless you've lost your conscience... You don't handle looters by outrightly killing them, it's just sick. The problem is all of yal shouting 'kill them' aren't smart enough to think there's a better and tactical way to handle this. It's painful cos in the end the looting/ channelling senseless activities at innocents harms us more than the corrupt government we're claiming to fight and yal encouraging them to keep killing them are even worst. I don't think you've watched a human being die before sha...

If we take this looting casually this looters will eventually come back to start looting houses so if you like start support it them . We should retire back the police to security positions all over the country else people will be killed willingly as we have seen so far.

It might sound impossible or laughable but i suggest that at a later date when tempers go down, the government should set up a procedure where people can give up illegal arms voluntarily even if it means buying them back from the people.

I hope the policemen didn't kill innocent shoppers along with hoodlums.
Because naija no just balance at all.
For the looters, they must be made to face the wrath of the law.
Which sane shopper would be there at such a time? Those looters are going to be killed forget it.

I hope you can say the same when they are killing those policemen, you are right though but they had to handle them like robbers, it is not everything that America does that we should do. As for the ones who were captured, they are already dead, forget it.
