Police should change name – Oyetibo

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Mr. Tayo Oyetibo has called on Federal Government to change Nigeria Police Force’s name to either Nigeria Police Service or simply, Nigeria Police.

The aim would be to re-orientate police personnel that they must not use and talk with  ‘force’ when dealing with the public. 

The governors, therefore, ought to have a rethink, as the youths are on the right path in their demands.
“Nigerian leaders must wake up and put aside political pettifogging and listen to youths. The Federal Government should set up a Police Reformation Committee to look into the welfare of the Nigeria Police. State governments should provide compensation for victims of police brutality,” he said.
