We pay our taxes, police must defend us – Femi Kuti
Veteran Nigerian smusician, Femi Kuti has made known his thoughts on the reformation of the Nigerian police.
According to the 56-year-old afrobeats singer, one of the job of the police is to protect the citizen.
Femi made this know while addressing the media at the New Afrika Shrine, Lagos where a protest against Police brutality took place on Friday, April 5, 2019.
Talking about Kolade Johnson’s fatal shooting, he tagged this one of the tragic excesses of the Force that must not be condoned.
“We’re not against the Police. We’re saying the complete orientation of the Police must change into positiveness.
“The Police works for us and must defend its citizens. The Police cannot go and kill its citizens. We pay our taxes so the Police must defend us.
“We’re not saying scrap the Police Force, of course, there’ll be crime. If Police is properly equipped then Police can protect us against crime.”
