Police Brutality: Fixing The Nigerian Police Is Now A Must – Gbajabiamiala


Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of House of Representatives has lamented over the increasing cases of brutality and killing of civilians by police officers.

The speaker expressed his fears in Abuja at a public hearing of the House Committee on Police Affairs, tagged “Repositioning the Nigerian Police for an Enhanced Service Delivery”.

He Said:

“When the public are as afraid of the police as they are of the criminals, and perhaps even more so, the very fundamentals of our nationhood are at stake. We’re confronted with an urgent need, deserving of our utmost attention and dedication.

“We must fix the Nigerian Police, restore public confidence and make the institution once more deserving of the true faith and support of the Nigerian people.

“In the last few days, we’ve all witnessed as the city of Sagamu in Ogun State has been unsettled by an orgy of violence resulting from the extrajudicial killing of a young footballer by officers of the Nigerian Police. Citizens who gathered to protest this killing were soon themselves at the receiving end of police bullets.

“This is not an isolated incident. We’re daily inundated with news reports of interactions between citizens and the police resulting in the injury and death of those citizens,” he said.
