As Nigerians to the street to protest against police brutality, some police officers shockingly attacked them.

Some peaceful protesters where killed, while many suffered various degree of injuries.

The flagrant disregard of the basic human rights of Nigerians by the Police Force, has been condemned by many, leading to larger protests across the nation.

Reacting to the worrisome trend, Genevieve Nnaji stated that if the government was serious about police reforms – as they have claimed – then some of the rogue officers should have been dismissed from the police force then charged to court for their crimes. She wrote;

“We don’t believe you are listening when nobody has been dismissed, arrested and charged for the murder of innocent protesters and citizens. Accountability is the first step to change.”
