Head of the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) Mr. Abayomi Shogunle has urged Nigerians to chat police officers up in Pigin English to stay away from getting into troubles with them.
The policeman shared a clip of the Commander, Rapid Response Squad, Tunji Disu speaking to police officers in Pidgin about the latest murder of Kolade Johnson and Ada Ifeanyi by police officers.
In the clip, Disu revealed that he was certain the policemen are shameful of wearing their uniform now because of the recent cases of police brutality in Nigeria.
Yomi shared, “Make we com carry that same gun to kill members of the public wey we suppose to protect, they can never be happy with us. Some of us will spoil the name of the police. For God’s sake, why carry gun, cork gun for where many people dey?
“Sebi we no forget that thing wey dey teach us for academy or police college. Dem talk say it is better to allow armed robber to escape than to kill one innocent person,”
Sharing his reation and cmmenting abut the language used Disu chose to use to speak with the officers, Yomi tweeted, “Lagos State will be calm if police chiefs in #Lagos do more of this.”
For now, don’t go and be speaking Queen’s English with them on the road. For proper understanding talk to them in Pidgin, another way to avoid kasala.”
