Nigeria Police Laments That “Another EndSARS Protest May Lead To The End Of The Police. The Criminals That Perpetrated That Act That Time Are Going To Come Out More Experienced. The Mistakes They Made Then, They Are Not Going To Make Them Now”

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG, in charge of Zone 2 (Lagos and Ogun States), Adeleke Adeyinka, has on Thursday, lamented that another EndSARS protest in the country, may lead to the end of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, Page 36 learnt.

He said this while warning his men to be more professional and civil when dealing with members of the public, to avoid a repeat of nationwide protests, such as the October 2020, #EndSARS protest.

The AIG gave the warning while addressing men of the Ogun State Police Command, during his visit to the Command, in Abeokuta, the State capital.

His words: “Another EndSARS may lead to the end of the Police.

“The criminals that perpetrated that act that time are going to come out more experienced. The mistakes they made then, they are not going to make them now, and that is why your conduct towards the members of the public must be effective.”

He further lamented the high rate of cultism among Police Officers, and warned them against misconduct and other acts that may trigger civil unrest.

AIG Adeleke also charged the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, to fish out Officers involved in cultism and cybercrime, who according to him, are giving the Police a bad name.

He added: “If you (Police Officer) are a cultist, I do not think you should show it to people because it is wrong, and do you know why it is wrong? Even if you are not wicked, if you belong to a cult group, there is no way you are not going to favour a member of your cult, unless you are not a good cult member.

“A situation where a Police Officer is a member of a cult group, and people in the society know that he is a cultist, his activities are related to cultism, I think it is sad.

“There are some of our Policemen too now that are into cybercrime, popularly know as yahoo yahoo, especially Policemen who find themselves in places where we have Institutions of higher learning, it is very common. You (Commissioner) need to fish them out, and you need to preach to them.”
