Because naija no just balance at all.
For the looters, they must be made to face the wrath of the law.


my brother police will surely kill innocent people- no be naija police again?

but are they supposed to kill in quelling down riots and mass burglary? what happened to rubber bullets? tear gas? in the US - BLM and Antifa protesters looted stores in broad daylight (am not saying it’s ok to steal) but is the excessive use of lethal force by the Nigerian Police commensurate with the crime committed? absolutely NO!

Those days Nigeria police use bartons and shield (they wear riot gear) to confront protesters - now it’s the lazy and easy way out of gunning down people recklessly - because police sef never chop, dem no get power to push back

Please no more protest. Stop the killing. Stop the looting. Everybody should go back to work. The president has suspended the protest he started.

Foolish man with no brain.

Criticism of the President is a welcome development but insult an elder like this is wrong. Maybe when u get to old age and receive similar insult by a deluded youth, then u will understand.

They should be arrested and prosecuted. That was my word.

Everything is on the decline in Nigeria.

What we know today as the MOPOL started out as the anti-riot wing of the police (and this can still be seen in the kitting and smoke deployment equipment some of them carry).

And they used to handle and contain public uprising in those days, the 80's with much more skill and competence but I guess many years of military misrule and sheer civilian incomoetence has led our security institutions down the path of least resistance which is mindless violence.

Something has to give. The personel of various security establishments across board must be reborn starting with proper recruitment, then qualitative and sustained training, if not they will just destroy all of society.

I don't think they are issued with teargas or other deterrents anymore. It is just AK 47 and 7.62mm ammo. And fellow citizens are clapping not knowing the killing range is more than half a kilometre. Which means serious collateral damage in an urban setting. Just sick.

Meanwhile no one is asking where the folks who are given official SUV's costing billions to the taxpayer to superintend over the people are hiding. I mean both political representatives and so called traditional leaders.

Why are they not out on the streets to calm the situation down amongst their constituents and in their arcs of influence. No one is asking. Citizens are busy eating each other up.

Very true. To the Nigerian government, politicians and policymakers, poverty and hunger are great political tools because they (politicians) know too well that when the masses are in adject penury, controlling them by giving them morsels always yield significant results for politicians.

Exactly. Those kind of actions is what led to the police brutality in the first instance. Yes looting is bad- a crime but they are not supposed to be shot dead except they try to attack d police!!


Evaromantik:
Who kills a looter?.. Is looting as a crime, heavy enough to warrant extra judicial killing. They should be arrested and prosecuted.

I neither support looting nor killing a looter.

They are only seeing a temporary unrest. The permanent ones are still on the way angry

Hardened criminals being freed & I saw it live in Ibadan as the hoodlum-protesters were carting guns away from a Police Station.

Well, I hope the guns are meant for animals hunting tongue

my brother I wish i can see you and buy you a bottle of chilled beer of your choice and give you a very warm hand shake for asking about the so-called royal fathers - they goofed

to whom much is given much is expected - so just to buttress your point, why are they collecting huge pay checks and benefits ? in my opinion- we should scrap the traditional institutions- period!

Depose all these greedy kings in Nigeria and send them to the factories to work for a living

they are not only irrelevant these days but liabilities to the system and strong enablers of political corruption!

authority2006:


You are spilling trash and I hope you know that. You think those guns that are legally handed to them are just for showing off? They have mandate to arrest and equally kill depending on the situation. The current situation in Nigeria befit both and that's exactly what happened here, some were killed in action and some were arrested. Police are constitutionally empowered to shoot you if you are asked to stop but instead decided to run away and escape. So, stop all these emotion and ignorance. Do you want even know how many police officers and DPOs that have been killed by those miscreants you're defending?
You're talking like someone that has a PhD in Illiteracy. So the guns given to police are for killing anybody anytime they want? Shame! You know nothing and you don't even know you know nothing. The fact that a police man has a gun is NOT a free licence to kill. Get that FACT into your head.

Ok, let's even assume, if your statement is true, then why does the Police have an accountability system for the fire arms in the officer's possession? Why do they have to account for bullets, why do they have to account for their usage of the guns? Why does the prohibition of use of excessive force exist? Why do they have an internal mechanism and panel that probes any act of killing done by an officer to determine if he is guilty or not? Why do they have RULES OF ENGAGEMENT?

Let me educate you free of charge out of the kindness of my heart. A police man DOESN'T have the freedom or power or right to kill anyone anyhow anytime he likes. He doesn't even have the power to shoot UNTIL certain conditions are met or certain actions or situations take place. There are RULES OF ENGAGEMENT for shooting. Depending on the situation, he can shoot to immobilize, he can shoot disarm, he can shoot to scare, or IN EXTREME situations he can shoot to kill IN SELF DEFENSE or to prevent a violent attacker from killing him or from killing another innocent person.

And for every person a police man shoots to kill, he has to give account before the internal panel of inquiry who will investigate whether his killing was lawful (that is to say, according to the laid down rules of engagement) or not. If found to be unlawful, he will face an orderly room trial or internal disciplinary committee who will pass judgement on his case and he will be dismissed AND THEN he will be charged to Court and prosecuted for murder. That's how the system works, that's the LAW of the land. We are not a lawless society where armed vigilantes kill anyone anyhow anywhere anytime without recourse to the law or accountability for their actions.

If a police man has a free license to kill anybody anyhow they like, so why do they try to cover up a killing that is unjustified or illegal? Why do they plant guns to frame up a dead body? Why do they lie and say a criminal engage them in a shootout to justify their use of the guns and killing? It is because THEY DON'T HAVE A FREE LICENSE TO KILL. If they kill, they must give account, if they give account and are found guilty of not following due process, then they are in serious trouble and will be charged for MURDER.

If a person attacks police with dangerous weapons or guns and is shot dead in the process, then the killing falls within a necessary shooting, JUSTIFIABLE BY LAW, not by the emotions or whims or I can do whatever I want attitude of the officer involved. If a person is looting, that is stealing, that is a crime. If a person is breaking into shops to loot, that is trespassing, vandalism and theft. BUT it is not a capital offense according to the laws of Nigeria. A vandal and thief is not worthy of death by law. And a vandal and thief caught by police who makes an attempt to escape is also not punishable by DEATH according to the law. Your feelings about it is IRRELEVANT, your emotions about it DOESN'T COUNT! It is the established laws of the land that police follows, not their emotions or your own opinion and feelings. And the law does not say that a police should shoot to kill a crimal looter or thief stealing and vandalizing govt or people's property. Anything outside of this is illegal.

A police man is not an officer of himself. A police man is an officer of the LAW, and must always obey the law or be punished by the same law. He is empowered by law and to whom much is given, much is expected. With great power comes great responsibility. A police man is held to a higher standard than the criminal. A criminal breaking the law IS NOT a surprise. That's why such a person is called a criminal. Crime = break the law. A police officer = upholds the law. You cannot be a police officer and a criminal at the same time. And this is why there is so much problem with policing in our societies and this your mentality is exactly the reason why Nigeria IS NOT civilized.

Re: Police Kill 5 Looters In Ikotun, Arrest Scores by GIdiata(m): 12:01pm On Oct 23, 2020
Reference:


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.

you made sense. I agree with you we need calm. BUT THOSE COMMITING THOSE CRIMES ARE THE REASON THE CALM WE SEEK IS NOT COMING.

SO I repeat, any crimanal or group attacking and LOOTING INNOCENT PEOPLE AND going to break prisoners out OF PRISONS

I CALL ON THE ARMY, POLICE, MOPOL to gun them down.

headshot will do just fine.
