Only holistic reform of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) by the Federal Government will assuage Nigerian youths who have been on the streets since Monday to protest against police brutality and intimidation, especially by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
This seems to be the consensus all over the country as amplified by some activists, politicians, and unionists yesterday.
Lagos-based socio-political activist and critic, Chief Adesunbo Onitiri, stated yesterday that the present police structure was outdated and should be modernised to reflect the current realities and conditions as against the one inherited from the colonialists.
He pointed out that the nationwide protests could be a good omen to stop bad governance of the successive regimes in the country.
Also, the former governorship candidate of Labour Party (LP) in Ekiti State, Mr. Babatunde Loye, said there is an urgent need for the government to undertake the holistic reform of the police.
While addressing journalists in Ado Ekiti yesterday, Loye said reforms would help end extra-judicial killings and extortion, as well as engender professionalism and restore public confidence in the police.
ASSOCIATION of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for dissolving SARS, urging him to reform the police force.
