Amotekun: Ben Bruce Calls For Community Policing

Following moves by South West states to kickstart community driven security, Senator Ben Murray Bruce has come out strongly in support of community policing. He ttok to Twitter to write:

About the lady allegedly stripped by the policeman who arrested her mother and sister

The story is making rounds about a police DPO in Delta who allegedly arreasted a mother and her 2 daughters over landlord/tenant dispute in Asaba, Delta State.

Certain questions need to be asked.

1. Why exactly were they arrested?
2. Did she/they resist arrest?
3. If she/they resisted arrest, was disproportionate force used to pacify them?
4. The wound on the lady’s face, was it as a result of a blow or a fall from a struggle?

These cogent questions need answers.

Malcolm Omirhobo: Numbers 1-9 Are Arabic Numerals

A lawyer recently sued Federal Government of Nigeria over Arabic inscriptions in the Nigerian currency. Funny.

Fact check: the numbers 5,10,20,50,100,200,500 and 1000 on the same currency are made of Arabic numerals.

Why didn’t he sue for these numbers to also be removed?

If he had found out that something unlawful was written on the currency notes in whichever language, it would be a different matter.
