DID I hear he’s a philanthropist! Ok, I get it. It was in the spirit of philanthropy that he stopped to intervene in a case that did not concern him. But what I am not sure about is whether or not that same spirit was still in him when he decided to be rude and brutal towards the police officers. Or shouldn’t police officers benefit from human sympathy like their fellow humans?

Beating up two policewomen is a criminal act aNY where in the world, however, Nigerian Police officers have lost their respect and dignity to bribery and corruption i our lawless society. The accused acted in an unlawful manner by taking laws into his own hands, but I want to believe that those two female officers were in the process of extorting money from the escaped female driver that led to the unlawful intervention of the accused. Regardless of the intention of those two female police officers, no law abiding citizen will beat up police officers for any reason. I guess that he will pay dearly for his actions and bad judgment.

That is what the Nigeria police has reduced itself to through bribery. People no longer respect the institution.
