The Nigeria Police through its official Twitter handle , Nigeria Police Force @policeNG has informed Nigerians to politely request to search a police officer first before the officer proceeds to search a citizen’s house or car. This information was given through the official handle of The Nigeria Police Force.
One can only hope this does not end like the usual PR stunts from the police where directives are given by the hierarchy in the police but whose members are unwilling to comply with.
In 2015 when the former Inspector General of police disbanded roadblocks from highways, it took months for the police to comply in some states and when they eventually complied, they replace objects and worn-out tyres used for roadblocks with their own bodies and guns.
Still it will be better if the big man at tje top will allow citizens video tape police officers during road search and operations.
