    NIGERIA POLICE OFFICERS AND THEIR BRUTALILTY. OFTEN WONDER if they learn their deplorable inhuman attitude in the service, or were they inherently wicked prior to getting the black uniform. A similar case is concurrently going on in Rivers State, where the police tortured one Chima to death by hanging him overnight. When the public cried out, the police denied they tortured the innocent man, and said that he died of high sugar level.

    THE CASE IS still hot, and more protests gearing up. With base level of crass unprofessionalism in the Nigeria Police, they still say they are friends. I guess I should hate friends from now.

    IF I AM sad because of this police officer’s death, it would be because he was the one who murdered himself: he should have faced a merciless firing squad.
