So the crooks in Uniform in Lion Building are charging N200k per head for their own indiscriminate raids under the guise of anti tattoos? They just want to end the @PoliceNG this month Abi? Kontinu. #EndImpunity #ReformPoliceNG @PoliceNG_lagos @Opetodolapo @ParodySpokesman
Since the Government don’t care and wait for our youth to die before they post a lame tweet in commiseration and the IGP won’t correct his mistake without an order from the above, I suggest we begin to resist these illegal & barbaric raids. It is time to be your brother’s keeper.
If anyone in your community is taken, you have the right to mobilize the entire community to seek their immediate release. Stop paying ransom to rogue police. Stop allowing them to arrest your children. Stop reinforcing oppression & state backed Armed robbery.

#EndSARS objective has deeper meanings than the surface interpretation. We are saying sanitize the elite squads and put the right sustainable operational procedures in place to make them function as designed & not as a tool of oppression, abduction, torture and extortion.
The term reform has no meaning within the security structures across institutions without first repealing and replacing the acts that set such institution up. This foundational element is key because our Police Act Of 1943 predates Human Rights proclamation.
So everything built on that faulty foundation that is a relic cum vestige of military interregnum will not benefit society in the 21st century and we may have to build afresh beginning with a new law. This has been an ongoing conversation that the arms of Govt are aware of.

From findings we can safely infer that the unchecked impunity of the police have awakened the evil in the Anti Cultism folks to step up their extortions & abductions, leaving the tamed SARS disenfranchised from the lucre of the game. Now there is a competition & we are the prey.
A relapse is imminent with the ambiguity created by the IGP’s order which returned the elite squads (SARS/SACS/SAKS) Under the commissioners of police in each state. A protocol that has never worked but left our streets flowing with the blood of the innocent. #EndSARS #EndSACS
The elite squads in collaboration with their impunity ridden colleagues at the Police stations have nothing more to prioritize than feed on the blood of our youth. The hardship in the country is being cushioned by them with bloody extortions & abductions on a national scale.

@bimbola_01 @EBONGIE @Clinton_Vice_B @Osekita @PeperHade @DeleMomodu @Efficacy12 If you don’t have clarity you ask reasonable questions not as though you know better. The then IGP & his yes men spent months cooking up propaganda & denying until they were overwhelmed with the empirical evidence made public.
@bimbola_01 @EBONGIE @Clinton_Vice_B @Osekita @PeperHade @DeleMomodu @Efficacy12 It must be clear however that the advocacy was for the IGP to do anything as the police can not reform itself or be a judge in their own case. It was for the authorities to legislate and repeal and replace the outdated Police Act of 75years ago (Constabulary).
@bimbola_01 @EBONGIE @Clinton_Vice_B @Osekita @PeperHade @DeleMomodu @Efficacy12 The Presidency knows this but there is no political will to pull it through as the Legislative (NASS) was at logger heads with the Executive (Presidency) then. My engagement reveals that the Executive will sign the Bill if we can get it passed at NASS.

I have to cut my planned sabbatical short for the sake of elders who called in and the vulnerable. So no more break or strike action from Greatness. Those who may wish to kill themselves at this point have my humble unreserved permission to go ahead while offer lasts.
I received a troubling message via Instagram and WhatsApp on this case alleged to be a SARS attack. But given the level of engagement with the operatives in Lagos especially, I can almost vouch for the officers within the SARS formation... #ReformPoliceNG
Men of Zonal Intervention Squad, attached to Zone 2, Onikan kidnapped a citizen, tortured him and collected N464,000 ransom from his mother in Ikorodu. Emmanuel Adegbite, on the 5th of March 2019 was unlawfully arrested by ZIS officers while he was playing snooker.

Civil rights and advocacy has come a very long way. From the days of Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr. the American Baptist minister who was renowned for his staunch and unequivocal disposition on civil rights until it became an act in 1964.

His ‘dream’ has inspired a generation of people who are activists for various noble causes. The advent of technology no doubt has put a spin on how these change-agents approach subject matters.

So on the 1st of February, 2019, 4 friends were on our way from Enugu to Abuja after attending the burial of the father to their mutual friend at Okija in Anambra state, immediately after Obollo Afor in Enugu state they were stopped at a check point and a search was conducted,...
Needless to state the spate of robberies and kidnapping on that stretch in the dead zone with no network coverage, many people travel on that path with security escort but one of the boys has a licence to carry fire arm with an expiry date of 2020.
While the search was going on, the fire arm was found and the owner of the vehicle informed the policemen that he had a license and went further to present the license. The policemen immediately brought out handcuffs and cuffed 4 of them and summarily tagged them Kidnappers.

I admire the ambitious spirit of the new Sheriff in Town & his eloquent/emotionally intelligent Force PRO. The Devil is in the detail & we must keep correcting these semantics that Nigerians are not looking for the reformation of SARS. We were specific #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
This charge however does not lie solely in your hands as custodian of the authority of the police in congruence with the orders of the Presidency. It lies in all our hands and those of the legislature to expedite action on the passing of the New Police Act. Reform begins here.
FSARS stopped being a major problem with the stop gap in place under IGP Idris in compliance to the orders of the Acting President in line with the demands of the #EndSARS movement as spurred by the clarion calls of the people. Denigrating that is a Mortal Sin against humanity.

This is NOT a good omen. The New IG Of @PoliceNG has taken us back to the dark days we protested against at a critical period such as this (days to a major election). There’s a reason why FSARS was taken off the control of Commissioners. channelstv.com/2019/01/21/bre…
This rearrangement is just going to fuel corruption and lure the Commissioners of police into deploying SARS as political party Thugs. The stop gap worked because the Commissioners don’t control SARS.
With this order they’ll amplify the impunity they’re executing via the Police with their control of SARS. This is yet another setback in my own opinion. The negative impact of this will be felt in a matter of days. #EndSARS Objective may return. #ReformPoliceNG

A few minutes ago a deal was struck and the posting of the New Commissioner of Police to Lagos was reversed with the Old reinstated. Fmr CP Edgal Imohimi has lobbied himself back to Lagos & as Egbetokun prepares to return to EOD Abuja. This calls for concern. 😞 #ReformPoliceNG
It is worthy of note that Edgal spent most (if not all) of his service years in Lagos. Are we saying that DCP Edgal is the most qualified for this job? We have monitored his career advancement from SP-DCO-DPO-Area commander-DC Ops (Ikeja), is he allergic to other states?! 🤔
One of the very first assignment of the New IGP Of @PoliceNG may be to reshuffle the entire system and investigate this miraculous reversal which to me looks, smells and feels transactional. In the interest of Lagosians/Nigerians this must not be allowed to stand. #ReformPoliceNG

To the glory of God our words have never fallen to the ground. The citizens Lagos state have the cause to smile now as the Lagos @PoliceNG Commissioner has been redeployed successfully as requested in our petition. No more TaskForce abductions. #ReformPoliceNG
The new commissioner of Police for Lagos will be met & brought up to speed on engagement in the state and updated on the issues we had with his predecessor. The new Commissioner as gathered was formerly the ADC to erstwhile Gov Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. 🤔
Mr Kayode Egbetokun was directed by the police authorities to take over from Edgal as Acting Police Commissioner in the southwest state. We are not certain if he will be retained. But will update as we know more. Edgal however is history.

For the record, the IGP X Squad is probably the only unit left that observed the rule of law and principles of fairness asides from the Lagos SARS Command which is directly being monitored by the #EndSARS Movement & @citizen_gavel so if you notice any anomaly please report.
Thanks to our ever dependable @YemieFASH for seeing this through. The team involved here is actually the @PoliceNG IGP IRT FHQ team led by one Asp Okomayin Onotu & Insp. Salvation Omoyeni. The assumption made that led to this detention has been learnt from by all parties.
We will continue to work hand in hand with the PFHQ to ensure citizens rights are fully protected regardless of their complicit in the alleged crimes. Thanks to the DCP IGP X Squad Amaechi Elumelu and his team across Nigeria. #ReformPoliceNG @NPFSpokesPerson

A lot will change faster when Police Officers start getting demoted or losing their pensions if not dismissed for human rights abuses. We are days away from the change we deserve provided we all agree we have suffered enough. #ReformPoliceNG
Many patriotic Police officers are appalled by what is going on but they are in a regimented system and can’t fight the impunity especially where the oppressed don’t raise dust over it. Many are still applauding oppression and justifying it away under partisan politics of hate.
Election is here already and they have spread billions around to activate thugs across Nigeria to unleash terror for voter intimidation, suppression & oppression. From Kogi, Kano, Bauchi, PH to Lagos. No state will be spared. But we the people shall stand. We refuse to be cowed.

It remains unfair to judge people’s choices when you can’t see the options from which their decisions were based and the conviction that lies beneath the choice. It is also unintelligent to hastily deploy the Gavel without understanding in cases involving the enlightened.⛱
A citizen approached me with questions he hopes to publish for better understanding of my position and here are my brief responses to each of the enquiries. I believe it would help check the prejudices of most drowning in suppositions & emoting with surplusage.
1. Please just a formal introduction of you and your specialty (though I know, just want to confirm).

Kindly note and avoid disinformation. SARS (FSARS), SAKS & SACS are all under probation based on the national outcry by the #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG Movement. They’ve not been reformed neither did we clamor for their reformation but their disbandment & Reformation of the Police.
The sustainable reformation process of the entire Police structure will take years under a conscionable cum genuine leadership. Anyone who claims that the Police/SARS have been reformed is a raving lunatic and should be ignored. #ReformPoliceNG
From experience men with combatant training need structure & order without which they can not function effectively. Idleness bring out the need to displace the energy somehow thus the heightened crime rate of operatives starved of funds & proper engagement. They’re victims too.

Ambode continued his feeble speech while mayhem rages on right before their eyes. Same thing he did while police ruin lives of our youth in Lagos. Question though is...Will Police arrest @AkinwunmiAmbode & @jidesanwoolu for these murders? Afterall these are their thugs.🤔
I hope within 24hrs @PoliceNG IG would have ordered a siege in the homes of Ambode and all APC candidates watching while citizens murder themselves in an amphitheater fight for turf & crumbs. This however can not be said to be doctored. It’s captured on camera. #ReformPoliceNG
You can imagine the kind of slum of despair LAGOS is becoming under the 19year imperial rule of Asiwaju. His thugs boast openly about their Armory and threatens to unleash an apocalypse at the forth coming election while the @PoliceNG ignores them & intimidates innocent citizens.

The zone 2 Police Command through its operatives from Zonal Intervention Squad has arrested two robbery suspects:

1. OSENI UMAN - Male- 34 Years.
2. TAIWO OROGBEMI -Male- 46years

Both exconvicts with no fixed address.
On 31st Dec. 2018 at about 09:30hours, the command operatives while on Visibility Policing around Ogere Remo within Ogun State intercepted a Toyota Sienna Bus, brown in colour with two occupants.
On flagging down the vehicle the suspects attempted to escape but the Policemen were able to nab them due to their alertness. On searching the vehicle, a locally made cut to size gun with three live cartridges were recovered.

If there is ever a time in our polity to stand by patriotic officers in the @PoliceNG and @HQNigerianArmy it is now. These institutions are no doubt under siege by elements with a dangerous agenda. Imagine Police dismissing the officers they denied absconded from posting. 😞
A dishonest institution have lost the right to carry out such a purge. We will stand with these officers & investigate what lies beneath. We fear this is a plot towards the 2019 election which is dead on arrival. #EndImpunity #ReformPoliceNG @BBCAfrica @CNNAfrica @SamuelOgundipe
I’m just curious to know why 95% of the people illegally drafted to execute Army’s job of fighting Boko Haram while under the police were southerners. I believe there should be an explanation for this beyond the obvious need to purge the system before the rigging of 2019.

You are most welcome Distinguished. Thank you for representing the helpless who are not on twitter get their prayers answered. Kindly inform us of any harrsssment or extortion in that part of town and you are assured of a speedy response. #EndImpunity #ReformPoliceNG
We have noticed a growing trend in Police activities across Nigeria. Whenever there is crisis, police are no where to found until Thing deteriorate only for them to come later to raid the innocent and put a price on their head. This we will no longer condone. #ReformPoliceNG
People seeking to make a living were rounded up and forced to pay for their God given and constitution guaranteed freedom until our attention was called to it for intervention. Please ensure you report any form of police impunity in your area. What you allow continues.

The construction of law does not work any injury. Thank God for patriotic and professional endangered species in the Judiciary. #JusticeSanshi will be remembered and rewarded by posterity. #FreeDejiAdeyanjuNOW
The @PoliceNG MUST be purged as weapon Ized against the citizenry. This will not be swept under the carpet. All involved must be punished for their culpability in the abuse of their office for political gains. #EndImpunity #ReformPoliceNG
This is the kind of things the @FBI should be concerned about. Our Government has failed and have weaponize the security institutions against the people, most especially active citizens holding them to account. Just look at the human rights abuses and extrajudicial killings!

For five years or more the @PoliceNG Academy was starved of funds. Students were unpaid their allowances,uniforms were not supplied and they lived like prisoners. Those who are in their final year had no visible POP date. Funds were mismanaged & issue of legality arose.
Since police couldn’t be seen to be protesting, the students were conflicted and traumatized until our intervention. Today they have not only been integrated in the IPPIS for payment, their future is assured. Graduation is certain. Career advancement feasible. #ReformPoliceNG
I want to appreciate the @MinOfInteriorNG @abellodam for being a listener regardless of my means of protest and persistent arguments. He never gets tired. This is the spirit of a genuine father. Let’s keep the hope alive and strengthen our institutions. #ReformPoliceNG

“I remember when the world broke in,
To rip apart my soul,
For years after that one event,
I thought myself not whole,
My hours were spent with trying,
To fix it up with tape and glue,
Until one day I discovered,
Everyone else was broken too,
Here we were with pieces,
Of ourselves in both our hands,
So fragile and so open,
That I began to understand,
Maybe I'd been greedy,
To want my soul all to myself,
When it could be a lot more helpful,
In the palms of someone else,
Now every time I go somewhere,
I leave part of me behind,
And collect all of the pieces,
Of others' souls that I can find,
So when I'm meeting someone new,
It's not just me they get,
But also tiny fragments,
Of all others that I've met,

Case bumped to a higher level. Police have militarized the Karshi Area Court as well as Keffi Prison trying to force an update on charges and get a re-arrest warrant for @adeyanjudeji Magistrate has been professional. Re-strategizing engagement. #EndImpunity #ReformPoliceNG
By Law Deji is already a freeman but once that document is signed no one can predict what those sent in to force a re-arrest would do. This is going to take a breather. ⏰ Tick Tock. We must stop experimenting with politicians in a democracy. Police surely MUST Be Reformed.
The only thing stopping Deji and the rest from walking out a freeman is not the court but the truncation of due process by those who are bent on militarizing and forcing their way to continue detaining him. We currently have a siege as we speak. #EndImpunity #ReformPoliceNG
