Nigerians were astonished yesterday, Friday, August 2, in Benue state when a mobile police man shot some civilians because they did not greet him. I just don’t understand the nigerian police force. Their main duty is to save and protect human lives and properties not destroy. Idoma voice reports that the police officer simply identified as Corporal Terfa, attached to a checkpoint in Zaki Biam area of the state allegedly opened fire on a driver and his passengers simply because the driver refused to exchange pleasantries with him. Although no life was lost, a kid was said to have sustained bullet wounds during the incident.
I believe the power that is being bequeathed to these uneducated policemen is simply too much. They themselves do not understand the law and its content.
