Many Nigerians have since reacted to this statement, with some disagreeing with her stand. See some reactions gathered by LailasNews below;
@EnoAbasi_Sunday -I would say that Nigeria Police is the topmost ranking extra-judicial killer in the world. Scarcely does a month pass without a Nigerian cop killing a citizen over bribe, girlfriend/love interest, show of power, stray bullet, to cover up fact or even when the officer is drunk
@Poltergeyst_ – Good cops that cover up or don’t speak against the evil of bad cops are all in the same WhatsApp group. Just like politicians…once you are in the fray….it’s over for morals, decency n common sense. 😩
@henryakeze – A big joke. No doubt there are very fine officers but I find this tweet senseless and very offensive especially with the news of trigger happy policemen in the last one week. SMH.
@ijeoma_miriam – We like the work you have been doing as PRO and would like it to remain so but don’t come up with this narrative please.Nigerians do not have good tales about the Nigerian Police and the timing is wrong. Some family just lost their Son to same brutality we are complaining about.
@Neeeeyooooo – They are also the most corrupt, most unethical, most unprofessional, most heartless and most wicked set of humans in the whole of Africa, probably in the whole world….
