The Nigerian Police Wants You To Submit To Random Police Searches Because Apparently, EVERYBODY Is A Suspect

Contrary to the popular saying, I think we can all agree that the Nigerian police aren't always your friends. Here's proof:

Sis, this is legit just the tip of the iceberg.

They violently harass and extort innocent Nigerians everyday and it's clear that no one is doing a damn thing to stop them because when Nigerians voiced out their frustrations in the form of a survey conducted by The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) (which presented the Police as the most corruption-ridden Nigerian federal agency), this was the response we got:

This, ladies and gents, is the Head of the Police Complaints Commission Unit. Dude has clearly taken up permanent residency in the wonderful land of DENIAL.

See, it's weird that Mr. Yomi would say this because tons of pictures like these exist:

Loooool. They were caught on camera counting all their bribe money after a hard day's extortion. You can' can't make this stuff up! LMAO!

Anyways, two Twitter users were having a conversation recently about how the Nigerian police manhandle (and sometimes murder) innocent people when one of them tweeted this:

And then the Nigerian police Twitter's account sashayed into the conversation with this gem of a response:

Let's think about this for moment.

This is the way the Nigerian police seemingly function:

1) They position themselves at different corners and lie in wait like predators on the hunt.

2) Stop any young man they see with a beard and/or bag.

3) Accuse them of being yahoo yahoo boys (apparently only yahoo boys have beards now), search their stuff (pockets, phones, laptops, bags).

4) Harass them, threaten them with violence and then when they eventually find nothing, ask for money.

5) Repeat with other innocent people.

You can't just stop people AT RANDOM and search them in the hopes that you find something incriminating.

Let's not even address the fact that while they're busy disturbing innocent people, the guilty ones are out there fucking shit up! And not in a good way!

And how do you just say everybody is a suspect?

What happened to being innocent until proven guilty??

I think this person summed this up perfectly.

After numerous reactions like this, the original tweet was deleted. Probably after someone there realized that they had said nonsense.

In fact ehn,

What do you guys think of all this? Tell us in the comments section.
