Following the outcry by Nigerians over the incessant killings of innocent youths by trigger-happy officers, the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Yomi Shogunle, on Wednesday, said that another way to avoid being killed by Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is not to speak Queens English to police officers.
The ACP disclosed this in a tweet quoting Tunji Disu’s video where he was addressing members of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in Lagos.
The commander of the RRS, Disu, advised officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force in Lagos on the need to be good ambassadors of the force.
Disu reminded the officers that back in the Police Academy they were taught that it was better to allow an armed robber escape than to kill an innocent person.
Nice one 👍.
Lagos State will be calm if police chiefs in #Lagos do more of this.
